Action Item for This Week: This Thanksgiving, let’s give thanks to LA City Councilmembers, the Mayor, and the other SCAG Regional Councilmembers who voted to support a better RHNA methodology for our region.
Our leaders delivered a strong message that the region’s approach to housing needs to be more focused on high-density housing construction near job centers and transit.
Los Angeles’s affordable housing future won’t be found in a skyline crowded with tall towers, but in duplexes, bungalow courts, and accessory dwelling units, according to a new report.
These types of units cost significantly less to build so owners wouldn’t have to charge as much to rent them out.
A duplex, triplex, or fourplex converted from a single-family home could draw a return even with a rent as low as $1,500 month; a bungalow court on parcel zoned for single-family homes could support rents from $1,000. And they could be built more quickly.
