Could the Missing Middle help solve Durham’s housing shortage?
“Missing Middle” was coined by Daniel Parolek of Opticos Design, Inc. to define a range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living. In the third and final 2018 DDI Speaker Series event, Karen Parolek, Opticos Principal and CFO, shares how this ‘affordable by design’ option works in other communities.
