Urban Land Magazine: Medium-Tall Multifamily Housing
Urban Land Magazine is the magazine of Urban Land Institute – an organization with a mission to provide leadership in the responsible use of land and in creating and sustaining thriving communities worldwide.
Each month, Urban Land profiles projects that exemplify best practices in the construction industry. In the March/April edition, Urban Land featured notable Medium-Tall Mutifamily Housing projects. From Urban Land:
“Medium-tall buildings may not match high-rises in terms of density, but they offer other advantages in an urbanizing world. They block less sunlight and offer stronger visual connections between residents in their units and the streets below. They integrate more gracefully with low-rise and single-family neighborhoods. By incorporating courtyards and rooftop decks, they can increase connections to the outdoors in the civic realm.”
