Welcome back, world. It’s been too long since I last made any updates to this website. In the time that has passed, I acquired another domain, urbanshift.ca, which I vowed to myself to build into something of a movement for how we think of urban and suburban areas. I had visions of porting the material from this website over and kicking it off with some interesting urban research so I could convert this website into more of a personal domain, or close this conceitedly named domain down altogether. But, life and work got in the way: thanks to a marriage, work ramping up, a divorce, a two-year relationship, and a subsequent separation (in that order). I’m hopeful that my sudden availability marks a new era for my internet antics.
Personal babble aside, I would like to draw your attention to an Epilogue that I finally penned into the Burnaby’s Town Centres project. I’m intrigued with the new opportunity that the City of Burnaby is presenting with their work on Rental Tenure Zoning. This is the kind of material that the Town Centres have been craving: an opportunity to build on the ever-rising tide of development by introducing new socially and economically diverse housing types on an unprecedented scale.
Thank you for your patience, and please enjoy what I have to offer so far. What are you still doing here? Go visit the Epilogue! I stayed up until 1:30am on a work night to write it!
