Abstract: This thesis investigates a hidden component found in many North America cities that may be the key to solving the housing crisis. Through the research of Missing Middle housing in the Toronto, Ontario context, a new proposal is created that aims to be a possible solution to the housing crisis. Careful understanding of the transit line that runs through the Yellow Belt region reveals three potential sites for a new housing proposal. Through the process of iteration, a final site and design is created with the guidance of the fundamentals of lighting and street safety. An investigation into key case studies under these fundamentals brings new ideas in the creation of the final proposal. By challenging the current methods of urban design and returning to a more people focused approach, Toronto can fix its situation in the housing crisis and provide what all people deserve, a place to call home.
