It’s been a decades-old commitment to add density along the major arterials of the city. (Residents of low-density and single-family neighbourhoods tend to support the initiative because it keeps higher density along the edges and provides a buffer from the busier routes – though most people would prefer to live on the quieter inside streets.  See the West End and Kerrisdale on either side of 41st.)

Still, as examples emerge, the results are looking good.  For example, along 41st across from Oakridge:

Even better, the row housing lining up along Oak:
