Food for thought: Is Infill Working?

Some very interesting thoughts on the growing demand for condos in downtown Ottawa...
"Consider a theoretical urban professional who moved into a downtown condo tower. Has a car in the building garage. Maybe works in Kanata. Has friends in the 'burbs. Has a cottage/second home/chalet at a ski resort or recreates frequently at upscale resorts, here and abroad. Has a spouse with independent employment characteristics and demands. Hasn't this household just relocated an energy-intensive suburban lifestyle to the inner city? Are these high income in-comers behaving the way traditional inner city residents do? Maybe, location is not the determining factor, but income is. Moving in high income people may just relocate their old lifestyle."
