Two notes on the OP's article:
1) Setting rental rates at lower than equilibrium supply/demand opens up to subletting at market rates. That's Econ 101. Even if I had a studio for 850 (not even talking about the $200 studio) in Cap Hill I'm subleasing it out to someone else who wants to pay market and I'll pocket the difference as income. And if the city wants to prohibit subletting after arguing for affordable housing, that's stupid.
2) "forced altruism" is bad. Let me do good things like charging way below market rates for people because I want to, not because I have to.
