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.It's a start but still seems quite modest.
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?
