Sensitive infill housing summary report: NH15-592/1981E-PDF

“The purpose of the study was to provide sufficient documentation of key issues surrounding infill development to assist governments in making policy decisions. Of particular interest are the economics of infill vs. suburbs decisions. Of particular interest are the economics of infill vs. suburbs from the perspective of each actor, the context for infill to happen, the physical capacity for infill and the accommodation of different client groups. Three case studies were undertaken: Winnipeg, St. John's and Toronto. This summary report discusses the method and results in each area. These cities appeared to present a continuum of a market not yet ready for infill, one ready to take-off and the latter in which infill is a well established form. Although it is difficult to determine to what extent these situations characterize other metropolitan areas, some common prerequisites and planning problems have been identified. It is most important to note that if municipalities or other agencies wish to take steps to encourage infill development, an assessment of the suitability of local market conditions is essential first"--Preface, p. 2.
