Mixed-use on the Ground

I stumbled upon the website of Keystone Architecture & Planning. They are an Abbotsford based firm and are doing some mixed-use and higher density design work in the Valley. While some of their projects are the standard auto-orientated development, they have some great projects that I wanted to highlight. Certainly there is an ever increasing portfolio of mixed-use, multimodal development in the Valley, but the majority of what goes on still makes me cringe. I have to wonder when we'll hit the tipping point where mixed-use and higher density development becomes the norm.
