Mixed-use development refers to the blending of multiple land uses, either within the same building or within the same neighborhood. By mixing commercial and residential uses, people are able to live closer to where they work and shop, minimizing the need to spend excessively on transportation. In addition, when combined with transit-oriented development strategies, demand for cars and, by extension, parking, may be reduced. In the affordable housing context, mixed-use development has less to do with outright affordability and more to do with the affordability of a household’s other essentials that are tied to where they live – transportation and more.
