Tall and Skinny

This "tall & skinny" new house is being constructed on a 3000 sq ft lot that was subdivided before 1957, but not built on until a recent sale of the adjacent property.  Amazingly, opponents of houses like this managed to get emergency legislation passed by city council, and there will be a one year moratorium on new permits on undeveloped lots smaller than the 5000 sq ft required by the current code.

I'd imagine that it should be possible to allow smaller homes than this to be built on these small lots, and perhaps sensible code permitting that will be written in the coming year.
