    It's a sad pathetic game. If you want to develop a 75 storey building, you propose 83 and "negotiate" down to the desired height. Additionally, under Keesmaat, the planning department has become...

    Great question. I doubt the OMB can approve this one. The approval has to come from the city.

    There is nothing to prevent a public hearing while before the OMB. That was Adam Vaughan's plan originally since the panel was created after the OMB appeal. I'm amazed at the rush to defend the...

    Keesmaat's legacy: cutting the Mirvish+Gehry towers down to size.

    I jokingly once said that I wish Keesmaat was made Chief Planner for Scarborough and other suburban areas do to her love of...

  10. Good idea and I completely agree. The problem is...

    Good idea and I completely agree. The problem is there is no zoning or formal city policy which directs developers to replace any office space lost during redevelopment. There was an OMB case I was...

    Regardless of the outcome, I'm not liking the lack of public information. We were promised at least one public meeting before Match 20, the original date it was to be sent to City Council. I...

    Get rid of the OMB and land use appeals will find their ways to the courts, just like in America. The current zoning, the harmonization of 483-86, is a joke. Becarful what you wish for, the current...

    Except in New York the zoning rules allow for the construction of a 1000 or 2000 foot building. The area in and around Hudson Yards is one such location.

    In Toronto there is no such location. It...

    Thanks! The working group has until March 20 to report to city council, but they are also required to hold at least one public meeting before then. There should be some new news in the very near...

    I hope the design for the 1000+ foot offer towers stay the same.

    The main complaints about the transportation hub is that it doesn't increase capacity and is well over budgeted. To their credit, they were able to get PATH trains running to WTC in 2003 after...
