With almost 50% of the city population classified as singles, the Zoning for Quality and Affordability report currently under review recommends relaxing density caps and eliminating the 400-square-foot minimum for studio apartments. The idea behind relaxing the the caps isn’t increasing the number of buildings but changing how the existing one are carved up. Commenting on the issue, Citizens Housing and Planning Council deputy director  Sarah Watson remarked “It’s far better to do this in an upfront way and allow denser housing rather than having hidden density on the inside of these buildings.”
