I don't think this is a hot take, but if the market wants to build fancy apartments, let them build fancy apartments.

The reason there aren't less fancy, affordable apartments is people weren't allowed to build new apartments 20 years ago, which would have aged into affordable housing this decade.

Sounds good to me. Just let developers build.
