San Francisco ADUs Are Being Built Mostly in the Richest Parts of the City

California’s uphill battle against its housing crisis has increasingly called upon a small but powerful actor: the accessory dwelling unit, or ADU.

Often referred to as in-law units or granny flats, traditional ADUs are small dwellings that are located on the same lot as an existing home, and typically have their own kitchens and bathrooms. ADUs can also refer to converted garages, boiler rooms and other sections of apartment buildings turned into housing.
