How did PublicWork.ca get the rights to insert a still image from the Avatar movie in one of the renderings?

A little piece of information about revitalization projects like this - it takes roughly 10 market units to cover one subsidized unit (according to an architect associated with this project). Even if they doubled the density of this plan, it would still lose money.

And this is what worries me about these "revitalization" ventures - it's a one trick pony. You won't be able to add anywhere near another 12,000 market units to replace the planned 1200 units when they need replacing in 30-40 years. Maintenance will be crucial for this neighbourhood to succeed, and I don't have high hopes in the TCHC and government to do so.

All it would take is the City purchasing/expropriating a single property by the looks of it.

The built form is straight out of a greenfield subdivision in Newmarket. Weirdly low density and not so much as a corner store.

Except there is retail for a corner store in the condo next to Yorkdale Station.. and this:
