Opticos is Excited to Announce Our New Missing Middle Housing Website!
MissingMiddleHousing.com is a new online resource dedicated to helping planners, architects, and builders implement a diverse range of housing types for the walkable communities of the future. Opticos Design's Daniel Parolek coined the term "Missing Middle" in 2010 to define a range of housing types that provide a solution to the mismatch between the available U.S. housing stock and shifting demographics combined with the growing demand for walkable urban living. The website features clear definitions of the types of mid-density housing that are most effective for creative walkable neighborhoods, and pin-points the market demographic that demands them. There is an extensive photo catalog and documented examples from around the country with illustrations and tables.
