What I found was pretty consistent; whether you went to an historic medium density neighbourhood made almost entirely of townhouses at two to three storeys, (93), a mid seventies district of euro-loaf style six to ten storey buildings (97), or a sixties complex of corbusian highrises at 40 storeys at 98 you got great walkability, what mattered wasn't the height or the density.
