By Infill ... the definition (The use of vacant land and property within a built-up area for further construction or development).

Let's limit it to HOUSING that is built between existing older housing in a city's neighborhoods. Either by loss of neighboring homes. Or merely adding density with available land there. Could be by Gentrification or merely as cities are increasing their density.

If low-income vs. Higher-end....you can note that also. Also feel free to show Pictures or use Streetview360s to show us your choices in examples.

I'm not sure, but I can say Seattle has some of the ugliest infill I've seen:

Those examples of Seattle infill just looks like typical modern design. Dozens upon dozens upon dozens upon dozens of projects have gone up that look exactly like those here in the Twin Cities.

Personally, I find the faux-historic infill the biggest abominations of them all.

Here is a bit of what's going on in Cleveland. Older interesting and beautiful architecture is preserved while new use is created. Some of these are downtown, some in city neighborhoods and some, not shown are in the suburbs. Where I live, in Cleveland Heights, there is an office building which was recently converted to middle income housing, the church across the street from my apartment building which is a beautiful structure has been made into a condo and another church will soon become apartments.

Here is the way it should be done. You have a former hospital, high school, warehouses and office buildings. Not pictured are a parking structure being built and churches. There are new buildings of course as well but they are not taking over and changing the entire look and feel of the city.
