Planning for Attractive Homes — Missing Middle Housing
Attractive Homes are designed, constructed, and maintained to be compatible with local community character. This guide explores missing middle housing, a concept of creating multi-unit housing forms at appropriate scales in walkable neighborhoods.
What is Missing Middle Housing?
Coined by Daniel Parolek, the term "Missing Middle Housing" describes housing within walkable areas with more than one unit at compatible scales to existing neighborhoods. The word "Missing" is used as the housing types are often prohibited in certain zoning districts. The word "Middle" is used as the housing exists on a spectrum between single-family detached units and high-rise apartment buildings.
