I read with interest the article, “Developers readying affordable apartment projects on Oahu” (Star-Advertiser, March 28), which covered solving the lack of affordable housing with a trial city program that would give developers various incentives to erect multi-family dwellings in place of single-family homes. It said the buildings would be three to six stories, sprinkled around the Makiki, McCully, Nuuanu, Kapahulu and Kailua areas.
