Toronto's shrinking condos: Built for families, perfect for roommates or couples without kids

Adam Vaughan’s quest for family residences in the core isn’t going so well.

“I don’t think we’re achieving three-bedroom units. I think we’re achieving units where people are crammed in just because a design that should be a two-bedroom unit is being made into a three-bedroom unit.”

I like the idea of more mid-rise buildings along the avenues; a lot of our arterials on the fringes of the core seem underused. But it seems hard to get developers to build them.
