According to the Star, a developer is planning an 80-unit development in the posh residential area, just south of one of the most expensive neighbourhoods in the city.
Homes in the area can sell for $1 million to well over $2 million dollars and the 50 or so members of the "Density Creep Neighbourhood Alliance" are worried "places that are only $500,000" will drag down their property values.
“We’re not against development,” Marcia Visser, founder of the Density Creep Neighborhood Alliance, told the Star.
“We’re just for planned development that enriches our neighbourhood and maintains and reinforces the physical character of our neighbourhood.”
She's also worried about "an influx of transient people," the Star reported.
