Design for Affordability
Looking for some fresh ideas about affordable housing design? The Urban Land Institute in Atlanta provided a great report to help housing developers with affordable options in new developments. Because the average cost of a single-family home in Savannah is now $290,815, many households with modest incomes cannot afford to buy a single family home.
The four housing development solutions in this report are quickly implemented, unsubsidized, use existing land and materials, and affordable for households with up to 120% AMI. The design solutions focus on potential co-living arrangements such as rentals with co-living spaces, accessory units, and other multi-generational options. Savannah has already approved an ADU ordinance in June 2023. (Here is a link to the new ADU ordinance from the City's zoning office.)
