*Rosedale is a sustainable neighbourhood, which is why the wealthiest people live there. This neighbourhood has humongous, healthy beautiful trees which all adds beauty to this area.
*Rosedale provides people with an ideal place to live because it has a beautiful scenery, many modern house and old houses, some including gates. Since, Rosedale is located in the middle of Downtown, Toronto, residents have an easy access to transportation.Also, there are many trees and parks. Lastly, the windy roads prevent traffic and the trees block out noise which lets Rosedale have peace and quiet.
*Rosedale does and doesn't meet people's needs today and into the future because it has modern and old houses, it has a lot of nature to it and it its one of the most prestigious and affluent urban neighbourhoods in all of Canada but, it is VERY expensive to live here, and only the wealthiest people could find a place for them in Rosedale. Does it meet people's needs today and into the future? Why or why not? Is Rosedale sustainable? Does it provide people with an ideal place to live? Rosedale is a very unique, beautiful and wealthy neighbourhood. It is one of Canada's oldest suburbs too. Everything about Rosedale is healthy and sustainable. It's nature, parks and trees are worth the view. It might have it's quirks but its a neighbourhood that has been living for a very long time.
