Even before LRT rolls out, there are signs the city's investment in light rail is triggering large residential, commercial and mixed-use developments.

“To make the system thrive and grow we want to attract investment close to it,” said Stephen Willis, the city’s planning, infrastructure and economic general manager.

New numbers show in 2017, the city received 1,044 planning applications. That’s a four per cent increase over 2016 and a 23 per cent increase over 2015.

Home builders like Tamarack are also re-thinking their developments.
