I received a tweet from a YIMBY (housing activist) who sent me this example of "good infill" development suitable for a small suburban lot. It is seven stories high, has no parking and built on a tiny 2700 square foot lot or about the size of a double wide mobile home. He says this design doesn't appear overly massive or disrupt low density neighborhoods. The average Marinwood lot would fit 3 or 4 of these apartments.
What do you think? Would you like to see these come to your street? How do you think it would affect the neighborhood?
Editor's Note: Personally, I would hate it. Loss of privacy, parking and sunshine. Suddenly there would cars on the streets, more noise, schools would be stressed and the small town feeling of knowing your neighbor would be lost forever. I believe WE THE PEOPLE should decide how we want our neighborhoods to evolve- not housing activists and developers.
