Is there a risk of incremental projects being used by city staffers and politicians as a 'distraction' from larger city issues? I.e.; 'look at the trees the caring citizens planted!', meanwhile there's another (unneeded) Stroad being built in another part of town.
In his presentation Joe gives some examples of very small, low rise
buildings, that are very productive. This seems to run counter to the
models that demonstrate that the taller the building, the more
productive it is. What are we to take away from this? Does it mean any
small yet productive building would be even more productive if it were
to be increased in size and height?
