Journal Of Commerce Image Journal Of Commerce

On this episode of The Construction Record Podcast™, digital media editor Warren Frey speaks with author Nick Ainis about his book, “Building Toronto’s Skyline,” about the history and progress of development of apartment buildings and condominiums in Canada’s largest city.

Ainis broke down how Toronto developed multi-dwelling housing from boarding houses to apartment blocks and then after initial resistance and delays in the 1970s saw a boom of condominium developments in the 1980s and beyond.

He also spoke to NIMBYism (Not In My Backyard) in Toronto even as far back as the early 1900s and the future of the condominium market in the Greater Toronto area.
