Friday Question of the Day

Should single family town homes and single family homes be placed on the endangered species list in DC? I see all the construction going on over the city and it just makes me wonder. I see all many row homes being converted into condos. Given the height limit on new construction and the strong job market in DC coupled with natural population growth, is it possible to maintain single family homes? I’m not talking in five years but in 25 years? 50 years? Will they change the height restriction first? It just seems like the trend is to convert everything to condos or apartments…what do you think?

Furthermore, should we all buy stock in Tyvek?  It seems like they have a monopoly on new construction…
