This is the old way of thinking. The large houses in the suburbs are increasingly being discarded as an option by young families for the townhouse/condo in the city. This generation has seen their parents be slave to the lawn, and they reject that concept, wanting the city action or at a minimum walkable areas with short commutes. The Exburbs have already suffered greatly, and though the closer suburbs still have their market there is some question as to how strong that will remain going forward if they don't start allowing walkable "town center" communities. Our area was stupid enough not to allow a proposal a couple of years ago.
