I love when people compare NoVA with some other city. Hello folks, NoVa is about 40% of the suburbs of a major metropolitan area. Try comparing it to comparable suburbs or the whatever city to the whole DC-metro area.

I'm not going to give specific examples of keeping up or uptight attitudes because it's more of a qualitative observation, as far as housing is concerned, I'm not sure what new development straddles the middle ground, soulful neighborhoods may exist, but they're not common, it's older construction, and expensive. The market here (and a lot of the country frankly) is crazy, borderline unrealistic.

My humble opinions.

More or less my housing "grudge" besides the financials is that new construction, besides packing people in townhouses in the middle of nowhere worsening the traffic situation is the fact the newer builds clash against the established areas and creates a bit of a dissonance and creates a void for the consumer.
