Shoreline expands housing options

On February 13th the Shoreline City Council unanimously passed a package of code amendments, which included Unit Lot Development (ULD). ULD divides land for the purpose of selling smaller scale housing units, but it does not create separate legal building sites.

Seattle King County REALTORS® encouraged the council to adopt the ULD because it will enable smaller-scale townhouse, rowhouse, cottage, and single-family-attached projects to be built with less cost, less time, and less risk. It’s also a great strategy for quality infill and comes at a time when housing options are desperately needed.

Additionally, Unit Lot Developments avoid the construction liability issues and required insurance associated with condominium development that has severely reduced the number of condominium projects within the region.
