I have long considered the venerable brick row house one of the great urban living concepts we seem to have forgotten during our long love affair with the automobile.  SRKM now has the opportunity to design a small (12 unit – 1 block long) project of this nature here in North-Central Indiana.  If successful, I would like to think this model may be replicated.  At 11-12 dwelling units per acre, the concept may not be dense enough for large metropolitan cities, but I think it could be a very comfortable fit for small to mid-size communities.
