I am not so sure that taller buildings in the 15 or 20 storey range make much sense on streets like Gottingen or Bilby. The 8-storey scale is great for these areas, particularly when the new developments have a sprinkling of commercial space and ground floor townhouse entrances. These developments are a big step up from previous generations of residential construction in the North End.

Young Street, on the other hand, is a great spot for tall buildings. It would be interesting to see some 40 storey residential buildings there. It also makes sense as a secondary employment hub since it has good access to the downtown and bridges.
