Haha, so now there's a "silent majority" when it comes to zoning issues. I don't dispute the idea, but I think a lot of people are more anti-development than you think. It's just that there is a small vocal group willing to protest it. The rest might grumble about the taller buildings initially, and the construction hassles, but then come to accept it. Few people are explicitly pro-development, besides politicians, urban planners, and architects, because new development ALWAYS adds some level of extra traffic to the streets, sidewalks, and subways.
la forme d'une ville change plus vite, hélas! que le coeur d'un mortel...
