    So, is this even doable in the USA?

    This is a serious question. I want specifics too.

    There are lots of places in the USA that are "poverty stricken" but, the politicians and city councilmen would NEVER allow such a structure to be built in their areas.

    Solutions other than revolution or 20 years of legal battles to change the zoning?
