What is Infill Development?

The process of building new structures on land within an already developed area, rather than on undeveloped land. Infill development can help to revitalize older neighborhoods and increase the density of a city's population. This can be done through building new housing units, commercial properties, and other developments, and can be a way to provide new services to existing residents, improve the streetscaping, and overall aesthetic of an area. Infill development can also help address issues of housing affordability by increasing the supply of housing in an area. Infill development is often a more sustainable form of development as it can make use of existing infrastructure, resources, and services.
