Leinenberger, Christopher B."The Next Slum?" Atlantic Monthly (March 2008). - This is an interesting article discussing a large and increasing putative demand shift from suburban housing to urban housing. Cited in the article is a study done in 2006 by Arthur Nelso, director of the Metropolitan Institute at Virginia Tech., in which he found that there will be a likely surplus of 22 million large-lot homes (built on >1/6 acre) by 2025 (which is roughly equivalent to 40% of that type of housing currently in existence today). I have a copy of the Atlantic Monthly article if anyone would like to see it - Jamey Volker.
