You make a great point here that I keep harping on - the need for family friendly housing downtown. Be it stacked towns, high-rise 3 bedroom apartments/condos etc.... I know downtown's are quite often 'singles-heavy'. Look at TO. Hardly a kid or married couple in sight downtown. Hamilton has the advantage of great family home neighbourhoods mere steps from King and James. Parks, rec centres, local shops, safe streets, waterfront links etc.... are all necessary to lure more families downtown.
My neighbourhood has seen a real jump in young families during the past number of years, as has Kirkendall and now even Durand and the North End. But we need to add thousands of new families to all the singles that will surely purchase condos and lofts coming up.
