How dense will people prefer to live?
Not dense at all, but preferences rarely have anything to do with choices that are essentially economic.

Not sure it is economic in these cases. It is about living downtown with all the action. I see it here downtown all the time. Old Macy's becoming apartments. Old office buildings becoming apartments. Everywhere, in a comparatively small area. Quick jump to all local sports, casino, cultural district, and of course work offices.

Some people love living in high density, downtown areas.

It's not for me.

Yes, that is why many retirees are buying old commercial buildings and converting them to large residences that are already located where all the 'action' is. Those in gentrified areas walk to 'whatever' in minutes, those in suburbia stay home and watch TV rather than drive for half an hour and get a parking/speeding/DUI ticket.
