I have often heard that condos and apartments in suburban communities are a uniquely Toronto phenomenon. Is this true?

Toronto for older communities (pre-80s) but otherwise it's a Vanc/Tor phenomenon. In general, Americans outside of big cities don't live in buildings over a few stories tall, especially not high rise buildings.

These pics to me suggest MCC will always be a "fake" downtown. No shoulder area, no inner city, no transition.

Considering the people I know that live in the area drive to Square One. I have to agree.

I visited the area last summer, I noticed the newer developments are more urban (retail on the ground floor) so maybe it will be a different story 10 years from now. If Mississauga keeps allowing for development without street animation (ground floor retail/offices) people won't have the habit of walking and MCC will remain a fake downtown
