In Question 4 you were asked about the proportion of different dwelling types in newly completed units across the whole city. As you discovered, there is a great imbalance in this proportion, which is even more extreme if we look at different areas of the city. Since we’re talking about buildings, we decided to allow you to explore this data through “skylines” of major urban streets that cross Toronto’s urban territory. 

Data for dwelling types, in each census tract on either side of the streets, is visualized as a vertical elevation from the road’s “baseline”. Experiment with the interactive commands to change street or to filter the data. If you’re unsure about a street’s position, just take a look at the reference map on the right! As usual, you can hover on elements to access more information.
