Abstract: The province of Ontario has for two decades promoted intensification and increased density in urban areas to preserve undeveloped land. One consequence has been high- rise development. This form of residential development, however, may not contribute to health and wellbeing objectives that are central in community design and planning. Consequently, this thesis examined the literature on health and wellness in housing and developed a framework for examining proposed high-rise development in Kingston, Ontario.
