    I like this proposal a lot. Infuriating to know the City will fight it and the process will take years longer than it needs to, driving up the cost of housing and delaying much-needed supply. Would be very happy to be proven wrong but not holding my breath

    That’s a lot of platitudes and dancing around the fact that we are talking about your opinion that towers should not be allowed in or near Neighbourhoods. Cutting away all the fat, that’s what I disagree with on so many levels. And you still haven’t offered an argument other than “homeowners...

    A 1997 secondary plan which predates the current official plan, and is now 24 years old, is no longer relevant. If you think the ARA is representative of its community….. hoo boy.

    You seem to see yourself as the writing style police in this forum. Always chirping how other people express themselves. It is annoying and condescending. Can you please stop doing this? Also, there is a PLANNING argument for not putting a steel mill next to a house. There are genuine...

    Their whiteness matters because they are unrepresentative of their communities https://journals.sagepub.com/doi/full/10.1177/0042098020964439 Meet Map 2 of the Toronto Official Plan

    This is not a planning argument It is a political argument And just to make my personal opinion clear: I could not care less what neighbours think. It doesn’t matter. If you’re a stone’s throw from the subway and an incredible depth and breadth of other services and amenities, you do not have...

    What an infuriating thread this is The clowns from the Annex Residents Association are rich white busybodies who step way out of their lane and unnecessarily dominate planning in this area — and this is not even remotely part of The Annex This should be a high rise site Its urban structure is...

    Well it’s not being “put up” is it. It’s a first rezoning proposal, obviously a wild flailing density grab by an inexperienced developer with one of the worst architects in the City. But this would be refused by staff and lose at the Tribunal (OLT) in this form, in my opinion. There will be...

    It is possible to simultaneously criticize his huge missteps and self-inflicted delays, while admiring his commitment to delivering something exceptional and standing out from the crowd. Both of these things are true.

    Can you give any specific reasons why it would be "wrong" to put a tall building next to a 2 to 3 storey house, other than that it would piss off rich people? Again, why exactly? Not the case at all. Historically this was a forest. Then a road was cut through and it was large estate lots and...

    I read the whole post. None of a 13, 15 or 21 storey building would “ruin the neighbourhood forever” lmao. I have no patience or respect for the notion that we must forever kowtow to rich people and their houses, entrenching their wealth and “protecting” them from the horrors of shadow, 1%...
