A Virginia Main Street Webinar Series
Upper Story Housing Development
Part 1: Understand the Field – April 22
Part 2: Explore the Opportunities – April 29
Homebuyers are looking for a diversity of housing stock and downtowns are uniquely suited to respond to this demand. Communities that have the housing options that buyers are looking for are more competitive in recruiting both residents and new businesses. In this spring Rev Up with Kathy Frazier, principal of Frazier Associates, learn some essentials on building rehab and development so you can help foster upper story housing rehab projects in your community.
In Part 1: Understand the Field – Learn about characteristics of typical historic buildings in downtowns, essential building code and zoning parameters to be aware of and tools for working with property owners and developers. Register now for Part 1 >>
In Part 2: Explore the Opportunities – We will take virtual tours of several projects to better illustrate the opportunities and constraints of creating housing in downtown. Between Parts 1 and 2, submit photos of potential projects from your community in consideration for a Part 2 virtual tour! Register now for Part 2 >>
