Small Lot Development in Belltown

New legislation would make it easier to develop housing on small lots in the DMR zones of Belltown. From Brennon Staley: Specifically, the legislation would allow simpler building shapes that are more appropriate for development on small lots. The proposed changes will be helpful for any new construction, but may be especially helpful for innovative construction approaches like panelized and modular construction. The legislation does not increase height or maximum floor area. Proposal Overview
