A townhouse is a residence that many find combines the best amenities of a single-family home and a condominium. By definition, a townhouse is a home that is attached to adjacent houses, which sits upon land that you own.
THE MODERN TOWNHOUSE will look at three types of town house projects that are increasingly popular in urban areas and close-in suburbia:
1) Renovation of existing town houses. This is a particularly popular activity in older, urban neighborhoods undergoing re-gentrification. Eighteenth and nineteenth century "shells" long in disrepair, are being gutted and totally modernized
2) Vacant lots, primarily in the inner cities, but also in close-in suburban neighborhoods where zoning restricts high rise housing, are being filled with four or five town houses that are built perpendicular to the street, usually in neighborhoods where the lot size would normally accommodate only one, detached house. This activity is in response to the increasing demand for urban housing where high land prices mandate multifamily housing solutions.
3) New, one-off townhouses, that are found primarily in wealthier neighborhoods where the high land cost can be recovered with a single, luxury town home.
The book will be divided into these three categories and feature project from around the country including Baltimore, San Diego, San Francisco, Miami, and in smaller metropolitan areas.
