Dallas doesn't really have any high density tracts, and has minimal transit share.

The stuff in the foreground is where single people live; they aren't gonna be in 3-4,000 sq. ft. tract homes. I mean, yeah, it's better than McMansions in cornfields, but it isn't like Dallas falls short on that score. And I suspect these apartments will age about as well as McMansions.

Dallas actually builds a crapload of multifamily. I believe they're #2 in multifamily construction starts, behind only NYC. But it's almost entirely the typology in the pic.
