Really? Why would you think this?
SF has the second highest urban density in the U.S., and probably the second highest property values. So why does SF not have the second most number of tall buildings in the U.S.?
Chicago is the city with the #2 amount of tall buildings in the U.S, yet Chicago is nowhere close to having the second highest property values.
Or, in Europe, London has the highest property values, yet very few highrises.
Or, even in Manhattan, many of the areas with the highest property values have very few highrises. The West Village may be the most expensive urban neighborhood on the planet (at least on per square foot basis) yet few highrises.
