What is it?

AB 2011, also known as the Affordable Housing and High Road Jobs Act of 2022, provides a streamlined approval process for housing development projects that are located in commercial corridors.  More simply put, AB 2011 makes it legal to build apartment buildings in commercially zoned areas, as long as they satisfy certain affordability conditions and the developer pays construction workers prevailing wages.

Broadly speaking, there are two types of projects eligible for AB 2011 streamlining.  In both cases, the project must be a multi-family housing development.
