Most Canadian cities don't really have this style of development, with the narrow streets, hills, and a mix of very old buildings with tons of character and modern infill.
I was talking to some friends about how weirdly dead Hollis can be sometimes. It's a major street but just doesn't seem to get that much foot traffic. Hopefully these residential developments (Ralston, Gulf lot) will liven things up.
