GRANT AND FILION: EMERGING URBAN FORMS IN THE CANADIAN CITY
- Jane Jacobs argued that the form of the city mattered to the health/well-being of
residents  new theories of sustainable development/New Urbanism/smart growth
have influenced public policy
Factors contributing to urban change
-Cities are inherently stable b/c innovation “jibe” w/ infrastructure networks and tech.,
while conforming to bylaws, building codes, etc.
- Home purchasing induces conservatism  commodity + investment
oHomebuyer looks at the things a subsequent buyer might look at, while lending
institutions prefer to build at proven systems of homes
- Economic transformations are changing the city
oEg. Decline in manufacturing = change in demand for land in urban areas, while
altering employment structure
oEg. More consumption of services  eg. More gyms/restaurants/health centres
etc.  contribute to “appeal” of revitalized inner city residential areas
- Middle-class neighbourhood is dwindling as there is income polarization b/c loss of
middle class jobs
- In context of urban development in high-grwoth areas, some developers look at
particular niche markets (try to reduce dev. Costs, get EOS, control chain of production,
increase marketability of projects)  to lower costs of urban infrastructure, developers
build private streets/services into condos
- Although tech. innovations affected developments of new urban forms, it has featured
less prominently of the past few decades
oEg. Find little evidence that internet/computer use is transforming dominant
spatial patterns
oEg. Cities are still car dependent
- Changing cultural values/practices have affected urban form  demographic shifts
induced some innovation  impacted housing
o1. Structure changed as BR fell, life expectancy increased = more aging
population
