Much discussion here seems to centre on the notion of urban density and its desirability. High-density living in distressed communities can be unpleasant for some because it brings them in closer contact with people in distress. High-density living in vibrant communities can be very rewarding for some because it brings them in contact with interesting, happy people.

LRT development and high-density urban living depends on people seeing the likelihood of leading a good life in close proximity to others. All great cities make the same bargain with their residents: you might be crowded and uncomfortable living here at times, yet life can be so rewarding that it is worth the pain it sometimes brings.
