How are Housing Developments Planned

The creation of a residential complex requires an overall vision and great attention to detail, as does any significant and complex project. Concept, pre-development, construction, leasing/occupancy, and ongoing operations are generally listed as the four main phases of housing development.

“When our economy is truly healthy, and everyone rises with the tide of prosperity, then issues such as the lack of affordable housing, homelessness, and hunger are greatly diminished,” said David Ige, the fourth native-born Governor of Hawai’i and first governor in the United States of America of Okinawan descent.

These key phases of the development process are detailed in this section of the toolkit, which also outlines the steps that communities need to initiate affordable development.

This toolkit assumes that public (city) land is used to build affordable housing. This could be land that someone already owns or land that the city government bought.

Here are some ways you can plan your home development:-

Determination of housing needs:

State housing agencies provide guidance and local authorities can provide up-to-date building information.

Formulating political will:

Citizens and elected officials must support each other. Contact local government officials, planning commissions, and elected officials.

When evaluating a potential site, consider the following factors:

Current zoning regulations, site inspections, land surveys, environmental restrictions, transportation access, and childcare facilities.

Securing property:

The Neighborhood Housing Authority must purchase at least one option in the selected lot. Securing construction and long-term financing is highly dependent on purchasing a property. Take action to reduce unforeseen costs, such as those caused by environmental problems, poor land conditions, or conveniences.

Set design standards:

Establish conceptual design guidelines, including standards for floor plans, exterior materials, landscaping, lighting, and parking, in collaboration with neighborhood property owners or local planning commissions. Affordable housing should complement existing public structures.

Get a financial commitment:

Full cash flow and pro forma analysis. Obtain commitments to conditional private and public financing.

Hire developers:

Representatives of owners, property developers, or site managers may be employed by designated housing associations.

Assembling the project team:

Form a project team with the following members: architects, builders, lenders, designers, lawyers, and general contractors.

Full final development plan:

Completion of land use permits, financial commitments, design standards, construction documents, and all other permits and licenses required to complete the final development plan.
