Annoyingly, a cantilevered building would solve the problem of the station building being in the way - but that would be very expensive and risky to build, reducing the amount of potential affordable housing. Probably would scare away a few developers from the project too.

At the very least, a modest cantilever could allow for a couple more units than would be possible on the small plot to the south.

Province is Expropriating land away from developers for their Ontario Line stations downtown (eg Allied lands at Kind & Bathurst), so they could do everyone a solid - and just Expropriate the TD Bank, McDonald's and Car Wash lands south of the station/city land for another "Transit-Oriented Communities" model...
