Unexciting amendments to the daycare space; the addition of an entrance on Queens Quay; minor adjustments to the bridge; and a small increase in overall GFA seem to be more or less the extent of the changes.

The May 3rd, 2019 Site Plan Control application has been revised in a number of areas to address the comments received and matters raised through the approvals process. In particular, as key amendments to this resubmission, we have revised the daycare outdoor play area to address comments from City Planning and Urban Design, added an entrance along Queens Quay to address comments from City Planning and Waterfront Toronto, and revised the bridge connecting The Arbour to Daphne Cockwell from two-storeys to one-storey between Level 5 of The Arbour and the existing Level 6 of Daphne Cockwell. Further, there have been minor refinements to the proposed gross floor area and floor space index, among others.

Not sure if this is a given for any development on the waterfront, but it was a pleasant surprise for me:

Unit paving to be replaced by granite paving on concrete base as per queens quay public realm details.
Unit pavers and assembly to match and continue from adjacent Menkes 'Waterfront Innovation Centre' development.

Looks like there will be an almost continuous stretch of the Pan-Am maple leaf pavers all the way from the Music Gardens through to the George Brown campus (with the only gap in pavers between Westin and Redpath). I wonder if this will continue with the other developments east of the Arbour.

Note that this is on the sheet labeled "Landscape Plan / Ultimate Condition". If you look at the landscape plan two pages earlier, the interim condition (to be constructed with this development and to remain in place until QQE reconstruction) is largely similar to the status quo -- no maple leaf pavers, bike path directly adjacent to the roadway.
