From the Star article:

"The main street, Calthorpe says, will be a vibrant Jane Jacobs-inspired mix of businesses and shops that draw people from within and around, at all hours."

Beware anyone who cites Jane Jacobs as a marketing slogan. She was all about an organic, distributed form of urbanism, not this "grand plan" type of scheme. Don't forget, density also means more profit per hectare of expensive land purchased, not necessarily a better quality of life.
