Note that cities sometimes also include vacant lots that have not yet been 
built on, particularly around the outer edges. When I was a child, there 
was a vacant lot between our house and the next one, because the original 
landowner had chosen to buy two lots and build on just one of them. They 
continued to be sold as a pair through a couple more sales, before the 
vacant lot was eventually sold separately, and built upon.
