Leading Design and Engineering for Multifamily ADU in California

The new ADU laws (AB 68 / AB 881) that came into effect from January 2020 allow ADUs to be added to your existing multifamily buildings like Condominiums, Apartments, or Lofts.

As per the bill, the ADUs added to the existing multifamily buildings should adhere to the following requirements

  • Multiple accessory dwelling units within the portions of existing multifamily dwelling structures that are not used as livable space, including, but not limited to, storage rooms, boiler rooms, passageways, attics, basements, or garages if each unit complies with state building standards for dwellings.
  • At least one accessory dwelling unit within an existing multifamily dwelling and shall allow up to 25 percent of the existing multifamily dwelling units.
  • Not more than two accessory dwelling units that are located on a lot that has an existing multifamily dwelling, but are detached from that multifamily dwelling and are subject to a height limit of 16 feet and four-foot rear yard and side setbacks
