At least here in Vancouver, the laneway house is the newest form of housing densification. On a 33′ wide lot with lane access, you can build a one and a half story house (i think 500 – 750 sq feet) of living space to either rent out or use as you will. some resistance in the wealthier parts of the city (Dunbar), but pretty enthusiastically embraced elsewhere – especiallyamong more ethnic neighbourhoods with a cultural tradition of multiple generations living in close proximity.

good article overview here.
