I’m with Crawford; why not let the market dictate what gets built?

Usually, buildings get replaced by more square footage, even if less units.

30 SRO units turning into 20 condos that can accommodate large families is a densification, yet would be illegal with this idiotic bill.

The number of units isn’t THE factor that always dwarfs everything else.

Increasing the number of housing units was the entire point of allowing them to build taller buildings. They should absolutely not be replacing buildings with fewer units anywhere in this city.

Except for airport flight paths, is there a good reason to not build taller buildings, in a dense metropolis already known for its skyscrapers?

You’re making it sound like taller buildings are a bad thing, only acceptable if there’s a trade-off to make up for it.

its not farm country and generally there are no large families anymore in the western world anyway, particularly wealthy ones that could afford those. so adding more apts or at least treading water would be much better than taking away apts.
