The residents of Mimico should be scared of the scale of the proposals there's no doubt about it. Although there are various planning documents which mandate the need for increased density around transit stations, they are flawed in the sense that they dont take into account the type of service these stations see or the existing local infrastructure already in place. Take Milton GO for example, yes that is a commuter rail station but it only has rush-hour service and it is already at capacity. Yet various planning documents would mandate that the area around the station should be built as dense as possible even though the station would never be able to absorb all those residents. With Mimico that situation doesnt really apply wih the GO station, but the local infrastructure around that area would never be able to absorb the residential influx that would come with all of these projects. The local streets wouldnt be able to absorb increased car traffic, the only main arterial road wouldn't be able to either, and there are no alternatives anywhere in sight. Additionally, the local bus route (the 76 Royal York South) wouldnt be able to handle the influx either no matter how many buses the TTC jammed onto Royal York since both the road and the station it connects to are already constrained. Essentially my point is, although planning documents mandate a certain density around a major transit node, it really shouldn't be a one size fits all model. The existing neighborhood infrastructure and characteristics must be taken into account.
