Seriously?....I live in the neighbourhood; I'd love to see a green space park included in the development of this site. It's worth noting that the city has a lot of money set aside for park allocation, but left unspent.
As for the "sketchy" element, there are a lot of new condos coming on the market; there will be a need for some open space, even a dog park. (The closest is at the northeast corner of Allan Gardens). Moss Park is mostly programmed for sports fields, Arena Gardens Park (where the Mutual Street Arena was located) isn't much more than a playground, and the Metropolitan United Church grounds aren't owned by the city.
I did... that's not necessarily true though. There's a baseball field at Moss Park and a hockey rink, but there's still quite a bit of "open" space. Also, while the city doesn't own the MUC grounds it's still accessible to the public.Uh, you read my whole post, didn't you? Where I describe the issues with the MUC grounds and Moss Park being almost entirely programmed as a sports field?
The red brick one? I'm pretty sure that's the existing TCHC apartment building at 25 Mutual St., immediately to the east of this site.Yes. If you look at the photo of the building view from Shuter St, you can see another tower to the right peeking out from behind the Jazz building.
