I didn't know that this kind of horizontal buildings are called groundscrapers. About the building that goes underground... I think that it would had a lot of problems. It would be claustrophobic and it would definitely deal with the problem of the Radon.

Got an old photo of one notable groundscraper in the Netherlands: its length is 800m (so it would be almost as tall as the Burj Khalifa if it stood up). It is the ill-fated shopping center The Wall in Utrecht. It consists of one long line in which shops are... eh... should align to each other over the length. It is visible well from the A2 motorway but its concept ultimately failed. And its original owner is a fraud (A real estate manager, from Dutch origin, is currently a fugitive hanging around in Dubai on a Cambodian passport).

Relieving the pressure on Dutch housing market: we need more apartments and taller apartment buildings, no single-family dwellings anymore!

Prohibit the construction of new single-family dwellings without stacking apartments in Amsterdam (A10), Rotterdam (motorway ring), The Hague, Utrecht (outer ring), Eindhoven (ring), Tilburg (ringbanen) and Groningen (provincial ring)!

And prohibit the use of agricultural land for new dwellings!
