It's not even backing onto single-family homes, either!
Don’t hurt the village feel of port credit. Just a few kms away in Toronto we’re building 100 floors. In Mississauga 10 floors? That’s crazy talk!!!

These residents are why I laugh everytime someone says that Mississauga downtown should have been on the waterfront. They don’t have the capacity to imagine anything other than their village vibe.

Just a few kms away at Square One we're building 70 floors. Some of your remarks are getting tiresome.

That’s true. But the real question is why can we build 70 floors at square one and have trouble building 10 floors here. The simple answer is that this area is filled with NIMBYS with power to actually slow or stop things from happening. Every area has NIMBYs. The question is why are these ones successful.

I am sure they are organized and have ears…or it’s something else. This is not an area of single family homes. We are not talking of 70 stories, and with due respect, not every ‘tower’ needs to be taller than the last. This is just 11 stories, and there are plenty on the area that exceed that height. So perhaps not nimbys?

Port credit is the only Mississauga GO train line with all day service. This shouldn’t even be a question. They should be able to build as dense as they want here. Instead there’s opposition to everything. Take a look at most GO train stops these days. They are building up up and up. Recently Oakville has a few 50 floor condo proposals at its GO train parking lot. Pickering has its proposals And Ajax has their proposals. Unionville go and Brampton go has proposals too. They are all 48+ floors. Not everything has to be 50+ floors but here we are talking walking distance to all day go service.

This is all very wonderful. Density, density. However, people live. work and play in these areas as well, and do the neighborhoods being planned and built support these densities? That is my concern. In fifty years will we feel that fundamental planning mistakes were made in creating density without the supporting services that will allow for all the social activities that take place in a functioning neighborhood. Do we need mini-Hong Kong's ever where? Probably not. But this is not an anti-density argument. But it is a planning question. The municipalities have all gone through extensive planning process to plan for densities and if those plans are consistently ignored, or if the scale of any proposed change is of the magnitude of 11 stories vs 50. where does that leave us.

I can’t say for sure that this is perfect if even great planning. That said my question is how did port credit become the one place where we decided to stick our flag and say not here!
