The new trend seems to be 19 unit developments. Interesting.
That’s the maximum number of units you can build without triggering the new inclusionary zoning rules that require 20% of the units be set aside for lower income households.
It makes you wonder how many more units would be developed if there was no inclusionary rule? I assume that all of these developments would at least be building 20 units without the rule. And probably more.
Well, a half a block from the 4130 Division project (75 x 100′ site), there’s a proposal at 4040 SE Division, which will include IH, for 38 units on a 60 x 100′ site. So, double the number, although it’s a corner site. They are probably including some units partially below grade at 4040, as they’re doing at their 3212 Division project.
