Makes me wonder what can be done to assemble and densify those SFH's with their back to Finch.

It's a start but still seems quite modest.
It's honestly a tidal change from the city. One of the only examples I can think of where the city actually proposes to change neighbourhoods designated lands to mixed use. The only other example I can think of is along Eglinton where they converted 1 lot behind the mixed use areas along Eglinton to mixed use to allow for deeper development parcels.

Wow, this MSF is going to be a big stain on this neighbourhood and its future development.
It'll be an employment centre. It'll provide employment for those who ask in the neighbourhood, and a source of money to be spent in the area. Start here at this link and this link.

Sure, it will provide jobs. I guess I don't like it due to aesthetics and reduced development potential. How will the city encourage more development next to industry, in a neighbourhood with a terrible reputation?

"Looks" good to me.
