Is building skyscrapers better for the environment than single story buildings?

    In the sense of land distribution, yes. Building up instead of out is one way to cope with a growing population and to avoid environmentally destructive sprawl. Not only would this allow more people to live and/or work in less square feet of surface area, it also means that transportation costs and emission could be reduced by locating commercial outlets such as grocery stores and shopping areas nearby.

    I agree overall. But on the other hand, large buildings like skyscrapers significantly impact the local environment and create urban heat islands that change the local climate.
