“Smaller home options are the best solution for lower home prices. Our architectural firm is committed to creating homes that are not only affordable but also of the highest quality.” 

Steve Mayman, AIA  ERGO Architecture

I have known the developer for over 20 years and helped create this plan which represents the "Highest and Best" use of the land.  After working with the City of Carlsbad on many other projects over the years, I am convinced all parties can agree this project may provide affordable upscale housing for a broad market. The current design addresses all City and State requirements as we know them today.

“The cost of housing in Carlsbad is among the highest in the nation. Medium home prices in the overall City are over $1,000,000.

Interest rates for mortgages have been increasing, making the cost of housing go even higher. 

“Smaller townhouses can provide more moderate home prices, making them ideal for families of first time buyers,

our teachers and first responders".

These modern townhomes may be the best solution for families looking for a comfortable and affordable home in Carlsbad.” 

John Curt Fornal, Principal of

Chestnut-Carlsbad

 

We all should be aware that under State Law SB 9 four units might be buildable on larger SFR lots. 

In 2005, before the ECR widening project we submitted and withdrew an application to create ten such SFR lots allowed by the current zone R-1 for 10,000 SF lots.  

We believe the proposed multifamily development is a much better alternative than having homeowners build up to 36 living units under ministerial approval, with little to no public input.
