In my opinion, if the Durand area were to become even more of a mixed-income area than it already is, the lower city would lose whatever ability it has to draw upper income families altogether. The south end already has too many rooming houses and low cost apartment buildings which are drastically out of scale with the neighborhood. My grandparents have lived in the Durand for over 50 years, and like so many others who have stuck it out rather than move to Ancaster, they frequently point out that the neighbourhood is a mere shadow of its former self.
