Infill Design Toolkit

cover imageThis guide serves as a resource for community members — builders, designers, neighbors and others — all who are involved in designing, building, or participating in dialogue about the new development that continues to shape the form of Portland's neighborhoods. The various components of this guide serve as problem-solving tools, highlighting strategies for achieving context-sensitive design in infill development and ways of overcoming some of the unique design challenges of development on small sites. The toolkit focuses on medium-density residential development (such as rowhouses, plexes, courtyard housing, and low-rise multifamily development) in established neighborhood areas.
