I wonder if we can have our cake & eat it, too? We want people to move into the city, but chastise them when they don't want to live on "skid row" (meant metaphorically).

I hear what you're saying, and I'm not trying to be contrary, but I've noticed a lot of folks who tend to "bite the hand that feeds" around here (RTH & Hamilton in general).

There will unfortunately be some collateral damage done when any sort/level of gentrification goes on... we all seem to love these images & renderings (as do I!), but I fail to notice any crackheads, scooters or panhandlers in ANY of the renderings. That's cause they probably won't be there if/when the project comes to life.

So we should ask ourselves, what would we rather have: an Ambitious City like the kind we talk about all the time on RTH, or one that all walks of life can afford to live in? I'd hope for both, but I'm not sure if that's possible. I could be wrong...

Please correct me if I'm wrong, or have missed a point... I'm just kind of pointing out what I see here with my untrained eye!
