With their rear-windows overlooking the inner-city and their bay-windows reflecting the horizon, the surrounding high-rises are the catalysts of a shift in the orientation, center of gravity and magnetic field of the urban growth. This process is accelerated and accompanied by the irreversible decline of infrastructure and living conditions within the enclosure, decaying too rapidly for the rate at which maintenance is being administered. The inner-city no longer meets the living standards of the newcomers. Having reached a deadlock in the process to densify and upkeep the inner-city, the shoreline becomes the prime location for further extension.
