However, there is a new kid on the block — literally. Concrete buildings, when demolished, can serve as an excellent source of new building materials. "Instead of transporting aggregates from far away, we can use local buildings as a source for aggregates," says Francesco Di Maio, a researcher in waste separation and recycling technology at the Technical University of Delft in the Netherlands.

Forbes
For nearly a half century, the death of suburbs and exurbs has been prophesied by pundits, urban real-estate interests and their media allies, and they ratcheted up the volume after the housing crash of 2007. Yet, an analysis by demographer Wendell Cox of the counties with populations over 100,000 that have gained the most new residents since 2010 tells us something very different: Suburbs and exurbs are making a comeback, something that even the density-obsessed The New York Times has been forced to admit.
