Our communities develop and change, yet the impacts are not universally beneficial. Our neighborhood business districts exist in a dynamic, ever-evolving landscape where they face difficult obstacles to thriving, people-centered economic and social commerce. Further, our communities face a large gap between the available housing supply, affordability, and need.
The incremental development strategy can address all of these complex issues through an organic process of making small investments one project at a time. This is primarily in-fill development, which happens over time. It is deeply rooted in a community and reflects its character. Most significantly, incremental development focuses on “Missing Middle Housing”, which spans the gap between detached single-family homes to large apartment buildings. This helps communities address the large disconnect between the available housing supply, affordability, and need.
Also, because they tend to be small, incremental development projects can be undertaken by small scale developers who are more likely to be people who have not traditionally made up the real estate developer demographic. Since incremental development is not always an easy process, there is much to learn.
