San Diego Looks At Density to Meet Projected Housing Demand
"Faced with the daunting task of plotting out San Diego County's demographic landscape decades into the future, the region's number crunchers have concluded that nearly 390,000 more homes will be needed to house an expected 1.2 million additional residents. That's a 34 percent increase over the more than 1.1 million dwellings in 2008.
About 80 percent of the new homes would be multifamily units, a major reversal from years past, when residential development was dominated by the single-family tract home."
Officials are leaning towards the creation of higher-density housing and infill developments to meet the growing demand for housing.
