With more than 9 out of 10 residents living in apartments, the City of Vertical Islands is a corridor of apartment clusters up Yonge Street, the Harbourfront, and North York. With over half of housing being built since 2001, these are relatively new neighbourhoods catering to young professional renters. Residents living in these neighbourhoods are highly mobile (64% moved within the past 5 years) and single individuals, many of whom are renters. Similar to the City of Vertical Islands, the Remade City has a high distribution of income across its neighbourhoods. While 22% of residents are in the low-income bracket, 15% belong to the highest decile for average income. Many residents work in the Finance, Insurance, Real Estate or Science and Technology sectors, and are likely single renters early on in their career. On the other hand, 22% of residents also work in the service sector and are less likely to be able to be homeowners in the future. In short, this City represents a diverse group of single mobile apartment renters in some of the newest "versions" of Toronto's urban fabric.
