Yeah no kidding. I was upset enough that I took a few minutes to whip up this map to show how egregious this situation is. I present you, the living heritage museum neighbourhood of The Annex and it's twin sister Yorkville.For heaven's sake. If we can't build a 280m building here where can we build one? Their head's would explode if the proposal was 466m instead of 266m like we're seeing in New York, Moscow, KL, and a growing list of other global cities we compete with. These people are living on another planet; they need to be replaced. Patience has its limits.
And to think, I was coming on here hoping for an extra 100m.
Red = 500m radius around each subway station in the two neighbourhoods (which is being generous, as usually you should use 800 metres to represent 10 minute walk). 80 Bloor West highlighted for context.
