On Housing Affordability with #ElectricCities

By December 18, 2018 No Comments

Ryerson CBI Executive Director joined Jeremy Warson of the Urban Land Institute’s Electric Cities podcast, to talk about housing affordability in Toronto. For people wondering about what’s causing our current affordability crisis, this podcast is an excellent primer in the various forces acting together to raise prices, limit supply and prevent a growing demographic from accessing transit-efficient housing in walkable, desirable neighbourhoods–or the market at all. Asks Warson: have we reached “peak affordability” here in Toronto? Burda’s take: these trends are reversible, if we take specific actions.
