I'm not sure why the conversation had to take this turn. I'm wide open to various ideas on this topic and how we can best intensify Hamilton given our current framework. My last post above is simply offering my views on why we can't build Paris here. Believe me, I wish we could. If someone can convince me that adding 6 storey buildings on our remaining downtown parking lots will be enough to create a 24-7 city full of vibrancy and life I'd love to hear it.

I don't think it's necessary to get off topic and into some subjective discussion about how Ryan runs his 'blogsite' (that term will never get old. lol) simply because I don't buy the fearmongering about Vancouver heading down the wrong path. Surely, everyone who buys condos there and everyone who ranks the best cities in the world can't ALL be wrong.

If you don't like modern towers for no other reason than you simply don't like them, just come out and say that. Please don't try to tell us why Manhattan and Vancouver (2 of the most successful urban areas on the continent) don't work.
