While I agree that we can work on increasing the density in the core, I truly believe we need to be a bit more intentional in how we do this. Particularly I think it is important that planners make a concerted effort to build buildings that are family-friendly. We have an overabundance of one and two bedroom units. I would like to see more three or four bedroom units for families. There is so much downtown to offer to young families and if more young families move into the core I believe that the downtown businesses would benefit.
I like Jason's idea of keeping the Brooklyn style of development focusing on 5-6 story buildings rather than the monstrosities that are being pushed in Toronto.
