But in a way it does. Or, at least, does by neglect. The City fights tooth and nail over height and stepbacks and choses not to concern itself with ground-plane interaction. Were it to refocus its energy on the things that really matter - how we as pedestrians experience the public realm - we could almost immediately have better outcomes. But they don't, so developers don't and we get things like this.

Yep. Urban Design picks all the wrong fights, and this is a perfect example of where they should have forcefully intervened. They wear this to a certain degree, for sure, but ultimately this is Tridel's mess. Two wrongs.
