Single and Multiple Building

Multiple buildings pose the same problems as single buildings, although these problems can easily be compounded by the number of dwellings and residents. Here we have a much greater number of public areas to consider: shared interior hallways, elevators, laundry rooms and parking areas.

But multiple dwelling buildings don’t necessarily mean multiple problems. There's a certain amount of truth to the old saying; "There's safety in numbers" and with neighbors who take responsibility for each other there's no reason why a multiple dwelling building cannot be a safe place to live.
