How do we foster more small-scale housing builders in Louisville? What are the challenges, successes, and needs for the future?

Like cities across the country, there is a desperate need for more attainable housing products on the market in Louisville. Large residential complexes can take years to bring to market, can require extensive capital investment, and assembling large swaths of land for those projects is not easy. But there are opportunities for smaller-scale developers to enter the market with "missing middle" housing, essentially duplexes to quadplexes and other housing types that can fit with the existing neighborhood's scale. But how do we help existing and new small-scale housing builders enter and remain in the market?

We will be discussing these questions and more with a great group of experts and practitioners on the subject.

Join us for the next Open Studio at the UofL Urban Design Studio at 11 am on Wednesday, May 8th as we explore these questions and more during a focused conversation around small-scale developers and developments. We will be joined by some experts on the topic as well as staff from Louisville Metro.

Open Studio events are free and open to the public, however seating is limited to 17 people to facilitate open and constructive dialog in a conversational setting. Due to limited seating, RSVP with Patrick Piuma via email at your earliest convenience as seats tend to fill up quickly.
