Live/work developments are tricky to make financially successful. It is critical to allow for separate leases for both uses and not restrict the two to be owned or occupied by the same individuals. The project pictured replaced a requirement for a purely commercial building next to a residential development. The density overall is 13 units per acre. By allowing residential to face the rest of the homes, and commercial only on the opposite street frontage, it provided a buffer to the community from a busy commercial street. Lots in the community are considered duplexes while the units are detached with ADUs and small homes. Creative solutions to multiple situations are Katherine’s specialty.
