As they should. It would take less plot to house many people. It seems very practical and reasonable at this point.

By the way, just in case anyone here owns a truck, my associate is offering up a few truck wheel and tire packages from 4WheelOnline. You might want to check it out.

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?
