The Missing Middle Housing Crisis

This video, based on the history of housing challenges faced in Vancouver, clearly explains and demonstrates the need for “Missing Middle Housing’ in communities across the globe. Missing Middle Housing refers to diverse, multi-family and affordable housing options like rowhouses, walk up apartments and duplexes that make up the space between expensive high-rise apartments and single family homes. The lack of this type of housing is a real issue in Denver, where 80% of our City’s residential land is zoned for single family housing. The lack of Missing Middle housing contributes to housing shortages, the affordable housing crisis, traffic, and climate change. As we continue to work with the community and the city for a vision of the future of the Park Hill Golf Course, we think it’s worth looking into these types of housing options to provide affordable housing opportunities and allow displaced families to return to the community.
