You can have higher density but the skyscraper answer has been tried and failed. Note that most high rise public housing has now been destroyed (or is currently being destroyed by the occupants and operators). Housing for the masses is going to be the greatest need in time to come. Population control is the best gift to the planet but no one will address that in the political domain.
Even Arcosanti and similar futurists concepts may help in creating workable density and efficiency. It's just the concrete valleys and highrise mania that we've had enough of.
