That's gotta be one of the most impressive photos I've seen of Toronto.

That angle shows how dense downtown is and also how small it is (land wise). Still impressive.

It's amazing how much underutilized land there is just south of the Capitol building. Surface lots and a barren "park".

I still can't believe how much Austin has changed in the past decade, its insane, but in a good way.

Is there any chance of downtown Austin really growing outward, or are those single family home neighborhoods there for good?

Most of them will be there for the foreseeable future. There are four currently single family home residential pockets, however, which will not be so lucky:

1. Pictured in both photographs above, the small patch of homes that the skyline almost wraps around from the river toward campus. This area is on its last leg, and will be upzoned under CodeNext (the from the ground up revamp of Austin's zoning code).

2. The inner east-side mostly adjacent to I-35, but also extending out along each of the major road corridors, but particularly the 5th/6th/7th street corridors. This will mostly become mid-rise VMU development with single family homes remaining in pockets within their old neighborhood cores.

3. The Heritage, Rosedale, and Oakmont Heights neighborhoods, to descending degrees, are going to disappear as they are today as the development potential of the neighboring (to the south) West Campus maxes out in urban infill spurred by the university's dire housing need. The area is also upzoned in CodeNext and would be a natural extension of the urban core by connecting the current core to major development opportunities such as the redevelopment of the old state mental health facility and further urban infill development in and around the Triangle, Seton Austin Medical Center, the Kerbey Lane node, and the mixed-use development The Grove. If this last projection is accurate, Austin's urban core would be a contiguous belt of urban walkable development about 4 miles north to south, at varying widths between 1 and 3 miles.

4. Clarksville, to the west of downtown, has some pressure on its edges, but the core of the neighborhood should remain intact long-term.

I'd like to see more solid high rises outside of the Austin CBD and river front. Give it more of a Dallas vibe, plus aesthetically, would add a new dynamic to Austin.
