WHAT IS AFFORDABLE
OUR MISSION STATEMENT
KMW is redefining housing to build more equitable and inclusive communities.
Affordable homeownership solves inequities, stabilizes families, and connects communities. Access to affordable housing creates wealth, encourages diversity, builds communities, and ultimately improves the quality of life for all. KMW believes that equity leads to equality.
The affordable housing shortage has caused a financial burden for a large segment of the population. Cities across the country have experienced housing prices that have outpaced income. The gentrification of urban areas, coupled with historical divestment largely within the black and brown communities, has created an unprecedented loss of affordable housing units. In the search for value and relief - urban flight to more affordable states has led to the disproportional population decline in these neighborhoods. KMW is committed to rebuilding and connecting Chicago.
Design excellence promotes an emotional reaction that changes the perspectives and culture of a community. Together we can build a legacy of high-quality modern affordable housing for the next generation of urban families. There is a better way and a path forward. KMW is committed to improving the supply of high-quality, architecturally significant, affordable housing.
