I'm all for more density on the Danforth, but this stretch is one of the most vibrant urban experiences in the East End, especially when CaféTO narrows the roadway. I'd hate to see that jettisoned for 20-30-storey towers when we could accommodate the same density more sensitively with missing middle redevelopment of the surrounding neighbourhoods. I live in a neighbourhood of 20-30-storey towers and generally deplore NIMBYism, but a one-size-fits-all approach to densification just doesn't make sense here.Absolutely praying for a 20-30 storey TOC build here to set a new precedent for the Danforth.
“If you build it, they will come.”
In any case, I suppose Holy Name is destined to lose that lovely way it looms over the surrounding streetscape. A necessary change, but still a shame IMO.
