Raw Land or Redevelopment
The starting point for the land development process. For a development application to be considered ‘residential infill,’ it must result in a net increase of housing units in an area that was previously developed and/or used for urban purposes. Residential infill can take the form of secondary suites, garden suites, duplexes, semi-detached and detached houses, row houses, apartments, and other residential and mixed-use buildings.
