Higher disposable income, a population inclined to value aesthetic experience, a core tightly linked with high-end residential, adjacent to a key tourist destination (Spencer Smith Park/waterfront) and a comparatively compact downtown (at most, four by six blocks). Oh, and they made activating the area a priority in the 90s, when it was in a bit of a slump. Burlington has one downtown. Thanks to amalgamation, Hamilton has around four. I'm sure that Hamilton has 24 walkable blocks but they're sprinkled all over the place.

BTW, nice to see some love for Brant after the walkability fail post a few months back.
