    The only issue is that those blocks are all single family detached housing, which is the worst possible type for walkability and non car dependence.

      Wow, I just took a look at a satelite map of that part of Vancouver. Holy hell… this is absolutely awful. Just houses and roads, almost no green, except for some trees that are captured in asphalt.

      This is indeed awful. I thought these are houses with gardens around them. :(

        As always in North America, blame the HOAs and neighbourhood management companies for that. I’m sure plenty residents would love some gardens and trees. The notion that if you have a detached house you can do whatever you want with it is a complete and utter lie.

        Yup! Exposed surface area is the biggest factor in HVAC efficiency. That’s why apartments are more energy efficient.
