That's what I'm wondering.
And with single family homes, could you not build an apartment building on 3 lots, which would seem easy to assemble. Or drawing from the Norquay Village plan where 2 lots can be converted into 9 stacked townhouse units.
The area between Kingsway and the Skytrain line would be a good area to develop high density, for the stretch running from Nanaimo to Joyce stations. Norquay Village is a start I suppose, but it doesn't appear to be enough considering the high price of ownership in Vancouver.
