A friend asked for the following:

From 1990 to 2010 , what was the increase in the square footage of office space, in the number of units of residential and some quantitative measure of vehicle miles travelled or auto congestion.

And I got some numbers from various sources for the Downtown Peninsula, which I thought I’d share:

In 1990 Colliers International said there were 19,511,000 sq ft of office space Downtown; in 2010 that was 24,465,697.
.
Total jobs Downtown have gone from around 130,000 to about 170,000, as floorspace per worker has fallen, and we added some additional hotels and restaurants as well.
.
In 1991 there were 31,880 occupied dwellings in the Downtown (26,240 in the West End). By 2006 that had risen to 53,979 (28,948 in the West End)
.
There are about 10,000 more added since then to 2010, 600 of them in the West End.
