A household income for a single person of only $24k would be very "low income" for 80/20 buildings IIRC, and do not think many are offered at that level.

I read yesterday that the Mayor's plan was to build large swaths of mixed housing, all including the income slot of $43,150 to $69,000 qualifying for 58% of all this housing.
A full 22% will fit into the $69,000 to $142,400.
22% will be low income under $43,150.

So there is going to be a lot more for the "middle class" unless the bottom falls out of the economy AGAIN.
