It'd be nice if there was some smart mid/high-density residential added to the core. Going by the BIA's map (Queen to Wellington, Hunter to Cannon), my hunch is that there have been precious few notable residential units added to the mix in the last 15 years. I can think of...

Pigott/Sunlife Buildings (1996)
110 units

Core Lofts (2003)
103 units

Annex Lofts on Rebecca (2005)
40 units plus vacant ground floor commercial

Cityview Terrace (2007)
51 units

Terraces on King (2008)
123 units plus vacant ground floor commercial

Gore Building (2008)
123 units plus vacant ground floor commercial

Victoria Hall/Foster McKay Buildings (2008)
7 units plus vacant ground floor commercial

Filmworks Lofts (2010)
50 units

I'm hoping someone can cheer me up with news of my omissions.

Early-90s retrofits like the Stone Lofts and new builds like 175 Hunter East would add more residential density at the SE corner of the downtown. More recently, just outside of the down town core you'd also have the underwhelming Chateau Royale (2006), which buys you 198 units. And if you're looking to juke your numbers,
Linden Hall, the Columbia College girls' residence at Catharine and Jackson, houses 300.
