A growing local population means more and better public spaces are necessary. Land is limited in the area. The city wants a new park at the foot of Yonge Street and the removal of the abandoned ship for quality public space. A new condo contributes to the growing population and need for more and better public spaces. Therefore, it's reasonable to charge the developer a fee to remove the ship as part of the public space improvements the city has to undertake.
You said the "city" wants a new park, not the condo residents. So why ask the condo to pay for that?
Plus, the lake is there and the ship is IN the lake. I don't see how removing the ship will provide any more public spaces.
