Will there be high enough urban density?

If long term the full four avenues area was 2-4 story linked buildings this would probably be higher urban density than we currently have.

If we don’t make the central city at least vaguely interesting then very few people are likely to come back. We do need something to create a reason for enough people to want to live, work and visit our central city.
