Trestle Development Presents to Re:code LA’s housing working group

Trestle's David Allen was invited to present to the City of Los Angeles’ Planning Department on the complex planning and zoning issues that come with developing micro apartments. We explained that the biggest challenge tends to be parking, but we’ve also run into hurdles with neighborhood density requirements that incentivize large, unaffordable luxury apartments. Micro apartments, when done right, can fit within the community fabric and add vibrancy to the neighborhood. Check out the re:code LA effort at http://recode.la/
