Regulatory Option 5: Reconfiguration

Within Options 1 and 2, applicants can provide an alternative mix of affordable units based on the total number of bedrooms. Redistributing bedrooms into affordable units of two bedrooms or more results in a building with a smaller overall number of affordable units that are greater in size.


Sample Unit Mix: 25 Bedrooms

  • 10 Studios
  • 5 One-Bedrooms
  • 5 Two-Bedrooms

Total Affordable Units: 20


Sample Reconfigured Unit Mix: 25 Bedrooms

(Total bedrooms redistributed into two-bedroom units)

  • 12 Two-Bedrooms
  • 1 Studio or One-Bedroom

Total Affordable Units: 13



Notes: The same incentives apply to the reconfigured affordable units as are available for the affordable units in options 1 and 2.
