New Avenue brings design talent, green building expertise, and financial resources together to create multigenerational homes with in-law cottages, accessory dwelling units, and attached or detached livable spaces. Our mission is to make it possible for everyone to take advantage and make use of backyards, empty lots, and other small spaces. Whether your goal is to create extra space for peace of mind, a family member, a renting tenant, or a chance to downsize, our experts are uniquely qualified and dedicated to help you achieve this goal.
In the United States 40 million of the 70 million single-family homes have just one or two people living in them. These under-used homes were designed for easy building, not quality living, and they drive a seemingly endless list of negative effects such as sprawl, traffic congestion, lifelong "homeowner" debt, and costly energy use. This incredible waste of space is the result of the traditional model of accommodating growth through suburban tract home development. The US Census projects a need for 12.5 million additional homes by 2020.
New Avenue is paving the way for creating affordable and efficient methods to build this infrastructure. Using an alternative development model, we enable communities to grow internally, as opposed to externally, by building homes on underutilized properties within existing neighborhoods. We offer a turnkey solution and integrated project delivery method that accommodates all aspects of adding a small house: research, permitting, design, financing, and construction.
Our homes are designed to accommodate the true diversity of our family types, namely those of us that live in one- or two-person households. We call this the small plot development model, and it can end suburban sprawl as we know it, accommodate the demand for the 12.5 million new homes we need, and bring financial sustainability to families and our growing population. By creating new legal and financial products we eliminate the barriers that foil the old way of residential development and enable the creation of tens of thousands of right-sized homes that are energy efficient and attractive to live in. The homes we build strengthen and shape our communities without consuming any additional green space.
New Avenue is a supporter of the small house movement, an architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes.
