    it doesn't do that at all. Because those who wish to live in a more dense atmosphere will move to areas that are more dense.

    From one of your prior examples, people who choose to live in the neighborhood they are in now, chose it speccificaly because they liked it compared to all other neighborhoods that were available.

    The land in an area where there are family houses is not as valuable as the land in the urban center where the skyscapers and buisness complexes are found. Most likely, your taxes would actually go down and no one in neighborhood wold get punished. urbantools.net and the maryland land tax project have both done studies indicating that most family homes (around 80%) would see a tax decrease.
