This is helpful! Thank you. Sorry for the digression, folks.A lot of the "tax payers" never were taller. They were frequently downzoned before they could grow taller and it made redevelopment uneconomical. You need ~6 stories of housing often to be worth losing the retail space while you rebuild iirc. You see this a lot in Allston-Brighton eg the one story retail next to the 6-7 story apts.
