DESIGN MARFA Multi-Family Housing in Marfa, Texas


Original text

Wettbewerbsaufgabe Design Marfa is conducting an international ideas Competition to propose designs for multi family housing in Marfa, Texas.   Currently, Marfa has limited property zoned for multi-family housing. Please see Marfa's zoning requirements on our Downloads page:   http://designmarfa.com/housingcompetition_downloads.html   As tourism increases in Marfa, the availability of housing for full-time residents has the potential to become even more limited as the attractiveness of vacation rentals and part-time residences remove inventory from the market.   The objectives of the Competition are to:   - Encourage multi-family housing projects - Consider housing as an urgent and basic component of improving the urban environment in Marfa - Promote dialogue on how to improve the housing shortage - Encourage city planners and property owners to rethink existing code limitations and potentially rezone appropriate properties for multi-family housing   Marfa, Texas is a town of approximately 2000 residents and is located in the Chihuahuan Desert.   The site to be used for this Competition is located at 701-721 N Kelly Street in Marfa, Texas. Google Map coordinates: 30.316001, -104.026360 and is 71,550 square feet.   The site is located in a community of single-family residences and in close proximity to the public schools.    Wettbewerbsart Offener Wettbewerb   Zulassungsbereich weltweit   Termine Ende der Bewerbungsfrist 03. 10. 2014 Abgabe Pläne 06. 10. 2014 Preisgerichtssitzung (vorauss.) 06. 02. 2015   Unterlagen http://www.designmarfa.com/
