This project with the little park in the corner looks to me like good city-building. Between the retail unit in the corner, the ground-level townhomes, and the mere fact that tons of people will be moving into the neighbourhood in the coming years and will want outdoor space, I can see this public space getting good traffic.
Among streets in the area, the changes along Broadway and Redpath are especially noticeable with all the former low-rise and mid-rise apartments redeveloped for all these new projects. I used to frequent this area a lot more in the past, and the difference in feel nowadays is already quite drastic. It'll only get more evident in the upcoming few years of course.
