The poor will use a separate door under plans for a new Upper West Side luxury tower — where affordable housing will be segregated from ritzy waterfront condos despite being in the same building.

It's already a segregated society but it's not forced from above. People segregate by choice (privatizing). What would be interesting is if non-segregation was forced from above.
This really would change society because it's such a segregated thing. Republicans and democrats would no longer be able to live in their own republican or democrat world. You could no longer only read conservative books or go to conservative websites. Same for liberals. It would be required reading for every republican to read democrat books and every democrat to read republican books.
