"The average price of a Paris apartment fell to 8,885 euros a square meter in May from 9,165 euros at the end of 2010, the Databiens index shows."

That works out to 825 EUR/sq.ft.

Perhaps the dream of a dense city suits the well educated and well paid, but how many average families want to live in a 300 sq.ft apartment?

For people of average wages, the dream of an affordable home necessarily involves sprawl, which is probably why most people prefer the car than bike lanes and transit.

Do you have any ideas on how to address the affordability issue associated with dense cities?
