This touches on a very valid point. The problems are recognised, but there is a very real perception problem with “apartment living” in this country. A drive towards greater densities can only succeed if people are willing to live in such communities. Past apartment developments in our urban areas have certainly not helped people’s perception. An overhaul of D.O.E. guidelines on minimum apartment sizes?

I’d certainly welcome that – I’m a first time buyer looking for an abode and am seeing far too many (new) 2 bedroom apartments under (in some cases, well under) 500 sq. feet. Perhaps it’s worthwhile having such properties if they’re priced such as to be affordable to low-income earners, but they’re not especially cheap and you’d have to wonder about the quality of life living in boxes like those.
