RESIDENTIAL INFILL PROJECT

While most of our work has focused solely on the commercial corridors, we also recognize there are significant opportunities and challenges to HOW we add density in our residential areas. 

Design matters and policy will influence how well we are thinking through good ideas that may gain capacity, yet may also have unintended consequences for demolition, loss of cultural resources, climate impacts and affordability.
