. Price the prior neighborhood residents out and cater to the new, more affluent clients of the future. It never goes back.

1. Never say never. Places like 14th Street saw their fortunes decline from when they were first developed at some time. Long time horizons, I know, but far shorter than 'never.'

2. There is and will be fundamental neighborhood change, no doubt about that. However, we're not just talking about the dynamics of specific neighborhoods. We're also talking about the housing market as a whole, for the entire region.

Expensive housing does indeed soak up demand from other neighborhoods, because the demand is somewhat finite. Our supply is not even close to keeping pace with growing demand, however.
