What Housing Crisis?

"While the new Christian Science tower represents another dazzling monument in the 'high spine' of Boston's skyline, its 180 housing units won't make much of a difference in a city with 272,587 units. For $700 million, the developer could have constructed at least 1,500 mid-sized, mid-priced units. Unfortunately, the city's affordable-housing requirement hasn't come close to meeting the need for new units." [Globe]
