Understanding the Multifamily Market


Multifamily housing is typically characterized by multiple units in one building. which may be connected via shared walls. From low-rise duplexes to high-rise apartment complexes, multifamily properties feature a range of densities and heights. Today, multifamily properties are necessary to provide affordable units for residents, especially in high-cost housing markets. In fact, most subsidized housing is provided through multifamily developments. These housing projects often use building infrastructure and land more efficiently than single family detached houses.


Primary multifamily development types may include:


  • Condominiums
  • High-rise apartments
  • Multistory apartment buildings
  • Garden apartments
  • Townhouses
  • Bungalow courts
  • Duplexes
  • Triplexes
  • Fourplexes


Benefits of Wood Framing for Multifamily Projects


Because wood can be finished or exposed, the material provides an aesthetically pleasing structural system. What’s more, it is easy to maintain and repair as it ages. Today, wood is used in a wide variety of structures, from multifamily units to commercial buildings to clubhouses and more. Another reason why developers choose wood is because it features high levels of thermal resistivity. In fact, wood is four times more energy-efficient than masonry and steel, during and post-construction. Thanks to the cellular structure of wood, it has air pockets inside of it. High thermal resistance is especially beneficial for properties that are situated in locations with colder climates.


Wood is a renewable building material and emits less greenhouse gas than concrete and steel. That’s why it is increasingly becoming the preferred choice for environmentally conscious builders. This material requires less energy to extract, manufacture, and transport. When new trees are planted in place of the ones used for wood framing, the process helps combat climate change. This is due to photosynthesis – the tree’s natural process of converting carbon dioxide into oxygen.
