A 16-storey replacement of a surface parking lot and a crappy single-storey beer store a 5-minute walk from a stop on one of two subway lines in Canada's largest city = "overdevelopment".
While I agree with the view that it's not over-development for the downtown, the report does mention its impact on the park at the 519 which would lose a lot of sunlight. I have zero concern for residential areas losing sunlight, but we should continue to protect our public parks.
Also, the report calls for angular plane scale, and I agree that with this being close to the low-rise section of the Village, it should reflect that. The development at the corner of Wellesley and Church was also opposed by Planning for the same reasons. They're enforcing the policies that protect the main street character of the area. I am all for tall buildings, but I do understand and believe that a poorly designed heavy-tall building can negatively impact a fine grain neighbourhood main street.
Not every site needs to be a high-rise.
