Toronto’s high-rise condo developers are increasingly realizing they can play a role in meeting the needs of buyers looking for “missing middle” housing – and are starting to plan buildings that are no longer dominated by one-bedroom or studio units.

In recent decades, city planners have urged developers to set aside only 10 per cent of a building’s units for multibedroom uses and it wasn’t uncommon to see buildings sprout up in the core consisting almost entirely of studio or one-bedroom units.
