I am sure if Malvern came forward with a proposal to do that, there would not be an issue. That is why the city jumped to fund Bloor Street. They want to use it as an example for other areas.
So rich BIA areas get deluxe makeovers and Malvern or somewhere gets diddly-squat? That's the model for how we do things in our city now?
It is a win-win for everybody. What is the downside?
