What are the environmental consequences for building vertically? How are developers going to bypass all the local zoning laws that fight against this? Also, crowding people in cramped skyscrapers don't seem to be something I'd like to see. Just look at the situations in China and Singapore. Newer families are forced to live in condoniums and other means of shared housing and don't seem to happy about it. Why not improve transportation and build more houses further from the city?
What do you feel about transportation improving the housing market? The theory is that with improved transportation, more houses could be built bypassing local zoning laws. Faster transportation means people can live further away from work. Also, how soon will you think we'll get there if you agree?
