Robert Randall’s “Dream City”

I was interviewed by Focus Magazine’s Aaren Madden for an article on “What’s your dream city?” It’s a short blurb and if I had more space I would have liked to elaborate on the incredible potential lying in the northern reaches of Downtown, especially along the waterfront.

Currently forgotten by most Victorians the potential for the upper harbour is enormous. It could rival or beat the finest harbours in the world, eclipsing even Stockholm, Copenhagen, Naples and could even give parts of Venice a run for its money. The challenge will be balancing redevelopment with the desire by some to retain a viable industrial presence.

So go out and grab a copy of the new Focus. Also, don’t miss the articles by Yule Heibel on James Bay and Gene Miller on the problem with City Hall (and how you can solve it by voting wisely).

Here’s a scan:
