Won’t the bottom floors be too dark?

Could actually be lighter with fewer high rises – putting gardens on the top of low buildings doesn’t block light. The foot bridges are not likely to make much difference. The buildings could still advertise what is in the shops/cafes above. Or the buildings could be covered in ivy etc to continue the garden to the bottom.

Also there are light engineering systems that can duct sunlight down into a building through skylights.
