Canberra’s Boutique Real Estate and Property Management

Style guru thinks cappuccinos are cool

By johnboy 1 November 2010 23

The Canberra Times has worrying news of the visit to chat to developers by “cultural planner” Charles Landry.

Charles has the shattering insight that urban infill is probably a good idea and is sharing it with no doubt gobsmacked groups such as “representatives of the Hindmarsh, Doma and Rock development groups, the Canberra Business Council, Master Builders Association and organisers of the Centenary of Canberra.”

But most alarming is this:

”In the past it was all about ‘I’m a cosmopolitan and I’m [moving] through Paris’. Today it means ‘I’m someone environmentally conscious who still likes their cappuccino or coffee but at the same time, doesn’t just think me, me, me and I want the biggest car’.”

I mean any fule no the urbane hipster is drinking a soy chai latte these days.

What’s Your opinion?
