This housing study, sponsored by the University of Toronto Centre for Urban and Community Studies, was undertaken to investigate the financial feasibility and public acceptance of an alternate “middle-density” style of housing. The study evaluates the costs, benefits, and drawbacks of concentrated low-rise housing in urban areas, when compared to high-rise apartments and single-family homes.
