Anyone with thoughts on the trend in putting basements in new Palo Alto houses? I know this has been going on in old PA for years, but I have noticed it more and more in Midtown. Walter (and other engineers) - how are these going to hold up in an earthquake? When these are resold, do people pay enough of a premium to justify the added cost of building the basement? Any other thoughts from those who have debated putting one in a new house?
Thanks in advance for all responses.
