A one-stop source about accessory dwelling units, multigenerational homes, laneway houses, ADUs, granny flats, in-law units…
This is an excerpt from a post I just wrote on the Building an ADU website. It may be of interest to readers of AccessoryDwellings.org. You can find and read the full post on Building an ADU in L.A. – Part II
In a previous post, we discussed how City of L.A. was making a dramatic appearance on the national ADU scene in the first quarter of 2017.
Between 2003-2016, an average of one hundred permitted ADUs had been developed each year in L.A.. While 100 ADUs a year is something, it’s certainly not a lot of housing for a city with a population of nearly four million people, and 1.4 million housing units.
But, 2017 has entirely changed the landscape for ADUs in California at large. And, L.A. has done something that no one expected.
Congratulations to all the Angeleños who permitted ADUs this year. For 2017, the ADU development award goes to Los Angeles.
