Those older single-family or two-family houses that you mock are sustainable for that kind of neighborhood and there will always be buyers who want them, will raise a family in them and will renovate and improve them.

I grew up in one of them for twenty years, so I'm rather biased and tend to lack any real appreciation for them. It's better than nothing, but I much preferred the aesthetics of the cape cods near by or the Tudors that my cousins lived in.

for which the QP area is perfect)

One could argue that given the real estate market issues, we need to supply more housing, especially in a transit rich area in order to increase the supply and thus push down real estate prices and rents in order to make the city more affordable. In other words, I'd rather see some of those older homes replaced with condos for those immigrant families to buy into so they're not renting somebody's basement.
