The author presents what seems to be a market inefficiency. There seems to be a great investment opportunity in building more apartments in Silver Spring yet a "sufficient" number is not getting built. I suggest the author speak with real estate developers in the area and find out why they are not building apartments in DTSS or if they are, why not more. Are they not aware of the high returning opportunity or do they have a different set of assumptions and calculations that leads them to a different conclusion? Or, is there merely a lag between when it became apparent that DTSS was a good investment opportunity (and financing was available) and when additional buildings get built?
