2012 Build Small | Live Large Housing Summit

A Market Revival for Single Family Housing

Smart developers from San Francisco to Vancouver, BC are proving that small homes can be big business.  With the era of sprawling development and supersized houses passing, in-fill models of development on urban lots present major opportunities for the future.  There is an unstoppable demographic shift toward smaller households that demands a new product – one that is efficient, affordable, and flexible.
