While at Livable Oregon, Brian Scott conceived, launched, and guided the design and development of an award-winning demonstration project of infill housing in an existing close-in neighborhood. At a time when city goals called for infill development, but city policies, market bias, and neighborhood resistance made such development very difficult, the City Life project demonstrated the market viability and neighborhood acceptance of well-designed multi-family housing. Brian led a complicated partnership of five organizations to design, build, sell, and host a highly visible show of 18 new homes on a one-acre site.
