"when there's so much room to grow, if the government decides to focus on these less glamerous neighborhoods."

I think the OP was quite supportive of expanding options in less glamorous nabes. But since lower income folks cannot pay rents that will drive market rate development in such places, adding more housing in those places means either A. Direct govt investment/subsidy or B. Making those places desirable to residents with choice - which means adding transit AND amenities.
