Young people can become entrepreneurs

Walking around Gottingen Street the other day, I was struck by how many empty storefronts there are---it’s hard to put an exact number on it, because there are potential retail spaces on side streets and upstairs, but I’d put the empty figure at somewhere around 20 percent. See the map above.

The vacancies don't make sense to me---with alll the new condos and apartments being built in the area, why aren’t more businesses opening up to cater to the resulting boom in neighbourhood population?
