I could just have this city run by stalinists so the poor people live only in the industrial sector.

Since they'll be more space, you could totally cram more people into a smaller area.

But the issue is the property value. Wealthy people now want to live in the area, so landlords charge more for rent regardless of how many people are there. Tech companies move in to the city because tech companies are only geographically restricted by where educated people live and educated people love walkable cities. As more tech companies move in that in turn attracts more wealthy people in that industry to move in and quickly eat up all your extra space. This forces those who used to live there to move to the outskirts and endure long commutes to work at the new Starbucks that opened up and serve frappachinos to the people who took their homes from them.

Have the main residential areas and business centres car free, allowing buildings to be close together. to solve the problem of transport, just have an underground rail system. only the outer parts of the city along with the industrial areas have vehicle access, however there will be a route in the walkable section to allow vechiles if there is a need such as ambulances, fire services or Police. perhaps permits can allow people to use a truck to move their belongings if they are moving house etc.

But the problem here is the gentrification aspect. People will come into the areas to make these sorts of improvements, often including parks and other things to make the area more pleasant to walk through, but then those who pay rent in the area are forced out as property values begin to skyrocket.

as for waste disposal, perhaps they too could use an underground system but that would require a reliable venting system since food waste can produce an array of gasses.

then again you could just keep the regular fleet of trucks that we currently use, since they only appear a couple times a week I don't think it would impact residents too much. using the aforementioned routes specifically for necessaries. since there would be much less traffic, the road wouldn't have to be as wide as inner city roads currently are.

the big plus of keeping the cars outside of the business and residential area is that the areas that would be used for car parks would instead be used for usable buildings.

How about the subject of the "walkable city". Is this idea, where city centers are made to be more pedestrian friendly, really just a form of gentrification that forces out the poorer groups that have lived in the area in favor of wealthier groups that move in?
