Live/Work Units


Dedicated office and retail spaces come into a new neighborhood relatively late in the game, after there are enough customers living nearby to support their businesses. Live/work units, on the other hand, are much more resilient because everyone expects to pay for where they live; the fact that it comes with a place to work is a bonus, whereas a dedicated shop or office is burdened with paying the mortgage or the rent. The live/work unit shown here, for example, was the first building built in the entire neighborhood.
