					Single family detached homes, Laurel Walk, Brea,
California. Net project density is 10 units per acre.
The Southface Energy Institute reports that in the 13-
county Atlanta region, more than 50,000 new homes
were permitted in 1998 at a standard gross density of
three units per acre using more than 15,000 acres. If this
same number of houses had been built at a gross
density of eight units per acre, more than 10,000 acres
of land could have been reserved or saved. (Southface
Energy Institute, "Sustainable Design, Construction, and
Land Development," August 2000.)
