I really don't see the suburbs becoming the 'slums of tomorrow'. One distinct difference between suburban and urban housing is space. I imagine there will always be those people, particularly families, that want to have the house with enough space for the kids and a nice yard for the playset; things which are not readily found in urban areas; the typical urban house (which should be read as condo, apartment etc. etc.) will most likely be small, and your 'yard' will be the neighborhood park.
