Densifying Montreal: Is There a Balance Between Utopia and Necessity?
Once promoted to encourage the rehabilitation of a downtown littered with vacant lots, densification is now justified by the economy, social justice, the ecological transition and even the quest for prestige.
Are densification and high-rise construction, which are too often conflated, a solution or a problem? Do Montreal’s authentic neighbourhoods offer elected officials, urban planners and developers a path to intelligent density on a human scale?
