Regulatory Option 6: Fee-in-Lieu

Applicants may pay a fee-in-lieu in place of providing affordable units. PHB staff calculate the fee amount due by multiplying the gross square footage of the residential and residential-related areas of the building by the Fee-in-Lieu Factor (PDF).

Buildings that are not subject to Inclusionary Housing can purchase bonus density at $24/bonus square foot. Bureau of Development Services, Planning & Zoning determines the maximum density possible for each project.
