Site Option C - Upper Missing Middle 8+ Unit Building(s)
This site is in a small-sized city within a downtown mixed-use district. The adjacent structures include an eclectic mix of commercial and residential uses, with the houses typically one- and two-story structures. The site represents an area one block beyond the downtown core of a small town along the same street. The design solutions should consider transitioning from the core of a downtown into primarily residential areas. The intent is to show how medium density housing (T4/T5) can be appropriately integrated into this context.

Build-to-Line: Must establish a Build-to-Line in accordance with New Urbanism Principles as appropriate for Transect Zones T4/T5.
