Missing Middle Housing is coming in the Triangle
What’s next for the Triangle’s Missing Middle Housing?
Kane said the Triangle is currently 35-40,000 housing units short of where the community should be right now, and local builders are only building 15,000 units per year. As builders play catchup for two decades of housing needs, Kane said Missing Middle Housing will be an important part of the region’s strategy. “We’ve got this great need in our community. We’ve got city leaders who identified and responded to that need and tried to release some restrictions to allow that need to be met,” he said. “There is not a housing style or size or type that we don’t need right now. We need everything.”
