The corollary of this in other European cities is then interesting ie.Stockholm, I believe, publicly owning 70% of the land in the city. Amsterdam similar (though has been selling off in recent years, unaccountably.) This puts those cities in position of strength, in terms of inequality, strategically addressing systemic challenges like climate change etc.
