What’s people’s thoughts on apartment constructions effect on local housing. I live approximately 900m from a busy rd which has a tram and a great restaurant and cafe culture. Over the past 3 years a lot of new apartments have been constructed and a lot more are underway with a lot of old car dealerships now gone leaving huge blocks for developers. The things I am noticing are: Pros: - More business has come about located on the ground floors of the buildings - More activity with a lot of the restaurants buzzing Cons: - A lot more traffic and only getting worse Thinking logically I see it as a benefit. I imagine with time that people will naturally want to move into bigger properties but stay locally, especially those with young families. Curious what others think?
