Six years into a Life After People...
During the housing boom of the 2000s, it was fashionable in the Seattle area (and, presumably, elsewhere) for real-estate developers to buy up lots, merge them, and then build as many vertically-oriented homes on them as would fit, resulting in compact neighborhoods of fairly pricey homes packed within a few feet of each other. The bottom fell out before all of the homes could be completed, and while some have been torn down (either to let the land lie or for someone else to re-develop the land) others have remained, unlivable, waiting to be reclaimed.
