Hi Jason You and I are usually pretty much on the same page but here I have to agree with the concerns of some the other posters. What the downtown really needs is some discretionary spending power landing and staying there. Subsidized housing development, based current tenancy criteria, will not achieve this. How's this for an idea?... We build luxury units and subsidize upper middle class residents to live in them. The only condition would be that no one receiving a subsidy could own a car (verified by provincial MTO checks). This might bring some money downtown and keep it there.
