The Many Faces of Infill Housing Development

What is infill development and what does it look like? Infill development is the process of building upon vacant or under-utilized parcels within existing urban areas that are already largely developed.

This video takes a look at new infill projects and how such development can help to add new housing to old neighborhoods.
