By blocking the creation of high-rise developments, San Francisco activists have crimped housing supply in recent decades, writes Gabriel Metcalf, executive director of Bay Area nonprofit Spur, in a post that appeared in Atlantic Cities.

The result? Sky-high housing costs that have made the city unaffordable for middle-income people.

Only by vastly increasing the production of new housing units may the city hope to reel in housing costs, Metcalf says.
