Portland just built a new library in one of it's urban neighbourhoods and added apartments above it: http://bighatrealestate.com/wp-content/b...

As well as a grocery store (major chain) with apartments above and surrounding it: http://hugeasscity.com/citytank/images/P...

Seeing what happened here with the downtown secondary plan calling for a two-floor minimum, I'm expecting developers to try to skirt this new two-storey minimum by adding their second level 'mezzanine' storage space as a 'second storey'. We really should mandate a livable or office space on a full second storey.
