" The subject site is 1,738 sq. m (0.42 ac.) in size and is currently occupied by a 4-storey rental apartment building. The redevelopment proposes to demolish the existing building and construct a new 35-storey residential building containing 377 residential units, including 36 replacement rental dwelling units. The proposal consists of 23,973.0 sq. m of residential gross floor area (GFA) which results in a total Floor Space Index (FSI) of 13.8"

I'm surprised there's a setback on the side facing the road, but almost no setback on the side facing the existing row of townhouses. Especially when the only major building on the other side of the road has a completely windowless wall and is much shorter than the building opposite of the townhouses. What's up with that?

On the Landscape Plan:

Proposed soil volumes are adequate, but a bit more might be nice in light of the rather ambitious tree spec.

The proposal includes 3 street trees, all Tulip Trees, spec'ed at heights of not less than 9M (27ft tall).

Not easy to source those at that size (and seriously expensive)

I question this choice here as I am suspicious than wind conditions may be unfavourable. Tulip trees tend not to perform well as street trees in Toronto (they often do quite well in large and sheltered yards/parks.)
