Why does Uplands want to prioritize housing people over building parks?
We think this is an example of the false choices that communities are given that can worsen the affordability gap. The reality is that we can do both! Our site design shows that we’re providing 2,350 homes, together with walkable cafes, shops and businesses, for families and individuals, and we’re also opening up access to 47 acres of parks, public spaces and protected view corridors — for the first time in a century. And in the process, we can meet key community goals for both housing and open space, livability, and inclusion.
