Opinion | Ward 3 is willing to try new things

I live in Ward 3, and I know it has amply shown its willingness to innovate and try new things. It’s the city that is holding things back — by promoting luxury housing (while pretending that a significant amount of it will be “affordable” — but affordable for whom?) and leases so high that only big-box chains will be able to afford to locate in commercial space on the ground floor of these luxury residences. That will create a sterile neighborhood where everything looks the same, including the people. That isn’t vibrancy.
