WHAT IS MISSING MIDDLE?

With walkable, mixed-use real estate now in high demand as an economic engine for cities, metropolitan governments are reexamining how to build productive, resilient urban places to attract young talent, aging demographics, and new employment sectors. A crucial factor in their development is diversity—not just diversity of residents, but in housing, transportation, and workplace choices.

 “Missing Middle” was coined by Daniel Parolek of Opticos Design, Inc. in 2010 to define a range of multi-unit or clustered housing types compatible in scale with single-family homes that help meet the growing demand for walkable urban living. 

DANIEL PAROLEK A visionary architect and strategist who combines a unique understanding of urban places with a Midwest sensibility. Dan’s passion for helping people design and plan better communities began with his small-town upbringing in Columbus, Nebraska, which inspired a lifelong interest in studying American towns and how they work best. He is the driving force behind the movement for “Missing Middle Housing,” a term he coined in 2010, which has been covered by Professional BuilderNextCityOn Common Ground (National Association of Realtors)Planetizen and AARP.

Dan has a deep understanding of the collaborative process that goes into designing and building communities and towns, and has a long track record of successful partnerships on projects ranging from small infill to large master plans. He is particularly focused on developing housing that meets the needs of a changing demographic audience and allowing builders and developers to target their projects for the widest possible range of buyers.

In addition, as an international expert in Form-Based Coding, Dan is a sought-after partner in bringing place-based thinking to zoning. He is a founding board member of the Form-Based Codes Institute and co-author of the seminal book: Form Based Codes: A Guide for Planners, Urban Designers, Municipalities, and Developers.
