hopeful, great idea. I agree with you completely about the need for more upper/middle income residents downtown. Check todays Spec for a piece about possibly increasing the density downtown. To me it's a no-brainer. It should drastically be increased, although I understand why city staff won't want to since it will require that they take urban revitalization seriously.

Another point that must be made here, however, is that 'city housing' is building some great housing stock these days. We aren't talking about some of the run-down townhome complexes that are all too familiar around town. If you've never been inside of CityViews or CityPlaces you should check them out. The new Gore Building is even better. I know people who live in these buildings and if you were to meet them you'd realize that they are exactly what we need more of downtown. Cheers
