Because Urban Cottages are architecturally integrated into the neighborhood, the value of
similar adjacent properties is more directly impacted than would be with other less
congruent building formats.

The urban cottage formula is also well suited for infill projects where compiling large
contiguous tracks of land can be difficult.  The project need not encompass an entire
neighborhood, but can work with and support the efforts of third parties outside the
primary development.
This graphic shows how the Rosengarten Park Project has spurred independent restoration and new
construction in the areas outside the originally planned development.
