  1. Great response from the community to build! There needs to be so much more built; I fear many of these projects likely will be mired by amber preservationists. The amount of applications probably doesn’t reflect how much actually gets built.

    Seeing as you’ve been doing this awhile, any chance you could compile stats of what gets proposed over what gets approved? That would really teveal the flexibility or rigidity of the market over time.
