Concentration of buildings in a given geographic area. Higher building density patterns have several affects. Without careful planning, high density can be associated with crowding, crime, environmental stress, and traffic congestion. Issues such as air rights and access rights assume great importance. Balancing property uses between commercial, industrial, and residential become prime considerations in property zoning. Property in high building density areas has greater value than the low density areas because of the balance between supply and demand.
