  1. We can very much build affordable if this budget is true.

    • Great observation.

    • We can absolutely build affordable housing, but only in the private sector.

      This project appears to be delivering apartments for about $350,000 each (plus land, most likely). By contract, publicly funded projects seem to run more like $600k per unit and up.

      It’s very clear that our government efforts at affordable housing are dedicated far more to other priorities than housing the most people possible.

  2. Is this occupying both lots or just the one shown in the picture? It seems like a lot of units to fit into four floors (assuming all of the parking is put on the first floor with the retail).
