TL;DR: In this article, the authors investigated the balance between forces of standardization and differentiation in the evolution of residential density in Canada's four largest metropolitan regions between 1971 and 2006 and found that the leading factors of standardized development are the continentwide postwar adaptation of urban form to the automobile and growing housing space consumption.
Abstract: This study investigates the balance between forces of standardization and differentiation in the evolution of residential density in Canada's four largest metropolitan regions between 1971 and 2006. The leading factors of standardized development are the continentwide postwar adaptation of urban form to the automobile and growing housing space consumption. The influence of these factors is manifested in increasing convergence in the density levels of the four metropolitan regions as one moves from older to newer zones. Nonetheless, inherited urban forms, topography, economic and demographic performance, and land-use and transportation policies all have the potential to shape distinct density patterns. Each metropolitan region presents a specific density trajectory: Toronto registers a pattern that can be qualified as stable and recentralized; Montreal emerges as a decentralizing metropolitan region; Vancouver shows clear signs of intensification; and in Ottawa-Hull the trajectory combines decentralization...

TL;DR: A condition is the on that will make you feel that you must read as discussed by the authors, which is the condition that makes us feel that reading is a need and a hobby at once.
Abstract: Some people may be laughing when looking at you reading in your spare time. Some may be admired of you. And some may want be like you who have reading hobby. What about your own feel? Have you felt right? Reading is a need and a hobby at once. This condition is the on that will make you feel that you must read. If you know are looking for the book enPDFd the transit metropolis a global inquiry as the choice of reading, you can find here.

Journal ArticleDOI
TL;DR: In this paper, the authors examined the spatial distribution of household debt in Canadian cities at multiple scales of analysing, and found that higher and unsustainable levels of indebtedness might be associated with urban growth, decline, suburbanization, gentrification, immigration, racialization, and greying.
Abstract: Vulnerability resulting from debt is part and parcel of the risk society and a salient characteristic of current neoliberal times under financialized global capitalism. Rising indebtedness increases the susceptibility of homeowners to housing and labor market restructuring, and if the degree of leverage is very high, can threaten the solvency, living standards, and social stability of local communities. However, very little is understood regarding how levels of household indebtedness are spatially distributed within or across cities, and how private debt maps onto the geography of race, class, housing, urban form, and other social variables, especially outside of the United States. It remains unknown whether and how higher and unsustainable levels of indebtedness might be associated with urban growth, decline, suburbanization, gentrification, immigration, racialization, and/or greying. This article examines the spatial distribution of household debt in Canadian cities at multiple scales of analys...

TL;DR: In this article, the authors demonstrate that today's young adult residential ecology is increasingly defined by proximity to transit, high-density housing, and walkability to urban amenities, and the residential pattern is one of concentrated decentralization in Vancouver.
Abstract: Considering Vancouver and Montreal as case studies, this article demonstrates the increasing centralization of the young adult population since the early 1980s. Gentrification, which brings higher income earners to the inner city, is often explained as a class-based process associated with post-industrial, post-Fordist, and, more recently, neo-liberal restructuring. However, delays in child-bearing, increasing educational attainment, and the growing amenity and housing component in inner cities have also sharpened the division of space by demographic variables such as age and household size—variables that relate to life-cycle stage, consumption practices, and generational differences. This article contributes to the understanding of the factors delineating urban space by considering residential location patterns of two different generations of young adults in two metropolitan areas. The findings show that today's young adult residential ecology is increasingly defined by proximity to transit, high-density housing, and walkability to urban amenities. Due to the higher-priced housing market and land use planning policies emphasizing densification, the residential pattern is one of concentrated decentralization in Vancouver. In Montreal, centralization of young adults is mostly associated with changing household profiles. In both metropolitan areas, the inner city residential ecology is increasingly delineated by young adults.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors compared patterns of accelerated increase in sprawl in the Montreal and Quebec Census Metropolitan Areas in Canada with the Zurich metropolitan area in Switzerland between 1951 and 2011, and applied the recent metrics of urban permeation and weighted urban proliferation (WUP) to measure urban sprawl.
