    Funny that the defense is first time buyers. Hahahaha! First time buyers aren't buying brand new homes. They are buying older cheaper inventory. They were priced out of new homes about 10 years ago. Presale condos are usually bought by property speculators (I mean investors.)

    Anyways, good on the city. Requiring a thicker wall, with better insulation will be a plus, especially with global warming and greater temperature fluctuations.
