I’m continually presented with projects that propose density that is close to or just at the threshold of the allowable density for a particular property use type.

But in the real world, these levels of density are rarely achieved. When you layer the real constraints on a project, the density achieved is often much less. The promise of high density creates unrealistic expectations in the eyes of the land owner. They think their property is worth far more than its true development value.

On today’s show we are going to talk about the top 5 constraints that chip away at density.

  1. Parking
  2. Green Space Amenities
  3. Roads, fire department access and multiple points of entry
  4. Height Restrictions
  5. Storm Water management
