Demand for High-Rise Housing in the United States

  • Richard Kateley


Overall demand for housing is declining in the United States. There is a simple demographic reason for this: Household formation, the key component of housing demand, will drop during the remainder of this decade and fall further in the 1990’s. As a result, most economists and housing analysts believe that total new residential construction will be at relatively low levels for the next decade (Real Estate Research Corporation, 1985; Apgar, 1985).
