Your comments are interesting considering this IS a 'working class' neighbourhood which is a phrase meaning anyone that has to work IS working class unless extremely wealthy. Yorkville is 'wealthy' however there are many tall towers placing shade on neighbouring 'wealthy' properties. Most people whether home owners or tenants would prefer to live in a peasant 'sunny' neghbourhood unless one is a worm or a mole. I did not see anyone wishing ' to deny housing to people who need it'. You said that. So let us propose a 20 story slab tower here and see how that goes ?Amen. It should be noted that the protection of sunlight is not afforded evenly across the city. For some reason City Hall has determined that the wealthiest Torontonians are in dire need of sunlight, lest they become pale and wither away. Funny how in working class areas there seem to be less angular planes. Wonder why?
Also I find it a bit amusing to encounter voices on this forum who are otherwise pro-development using phrasing like "in MY neighbourhood". Sounds pretty NIMBY to me.
There is no right to sunlight in one's back yard, and for the city to use this excuse to deny housing to people in need is... unethical? classist? anti-newcomer? reactionary? all of the above?
