dc.description.abstract For reasons of smart growth management, upcoming demographics changes, and escalating housing affordability concern, higher-density housing presents one fitting solution to future development challenges. Market conditions also seem favorable given increases in likely consumer population and the readiness of the real estate development industry. However, higher-density residences are still underrepresented housing typologies amidst a plethora of single-family homes. This thesis investigates how aspects of policy, measurement, and perception of density relate to each other in order to uncover predispositions and elucidate reasons for the perpetuation of current development patterns. A case in Fremont California was examined to contextualize and illustrate the findings presented, and recommendations were presented to suggest ways of overcoming current biases and shortcomings. en_US
