The Missing Middle Mystery: housing detectives on the case!
A housing crisis is a great time to ask “where are all those other types of housing?”
This is a great little video that unpacks why cities have the housing stock and “culture” and “character” we see today.
For the towns of Te Upoko o te Ika: high-rises and single-family detached homes, and the stuff in between is scarce as hens’ teeth.
Which is a shame because as we have these density debates, the anti-intensification scaremongering and genuine NIMBY fear is about TOWER BLOCKS where in reality what would accommodate people is all the middle stuff!
Vancouver is a great (and pretty extreme) illustrator of the case – enjoy!
About Here have great vids, worth a follow.
