Symposium summary: Breaking barriers, building confidence: Making Mid-rise Work in Ontario
On December 8, 2009, a range of midrise development stakeholders met in Mississauga to identify province-wide challenges and work towards solutions. Participants identified a set of strategic directions that governments, communities, architects, developers, and builders could adopt to help accelerate public and institutional acceptance, and improve economic feasibility of midrise projects. In this document, midrise issues and strategic directions are explored though three main foci: challenging assumptions, breaking policy barriers, and building confidence.
