ULI San Francisco is a proud sponsor of UC Berkeley’s forthcoming Accessory Dwelling Unit (ADU) study, “Jumpstarting the Market for Accessory Dwelling Units: Lessons Learned from Portland, Seattle and Vancouver”. This study examines the impact of various policy reforms and programs on expanding the production of accessory dwelling units. Using three case study sites – Seattle, WA, Portland, OR and Vancouver BC – will examine why some reforms have spurred more ADU construction than others, and identify best practices for other regions seeking to increase this type of housing development in their communities.

Following the presentation of UC Berkeley Case Study, a response panel will focus on cutting edge aspects of implementing ADU construction in the Bay Area.  The state and local leaders of the ADU movement will share insights on topics including:

  • How new state laws will further reduce barriers.
  • How local governments are making changes to facilitate ADU approval processing.
  • Lessons learned implementing ADUs in multi-family unit buildings.
  • How single family home owners are individually adding to expanded capacity throughout the Bay Area.
  • The potential ADUs have for expanding capacity to address housing affordability to relieve pressure on market rate developers.
  • How ADU construction is being financed.Housing the Bay Logo
