“Missing Middle” housing

To help achieve medium density, “Missing Middle” housing describes residential building type as a channel between high-and low-density options of town building. Coined by David Parolek in 2010, the discourse promises a better use of land by adding gentle forms of density – “gentle density” to low-rise neighbourhoods which are housing typologies that are compatible in scale with single-detached homes but range up to four units in height (Parolek, 2010). Parolek claims that, by adding gentle density to single-family residential zones (RD), more people would be able to afford and access housing in the suburbs, as more affordable housing options would increase.
