Building tall in Victoria

News item from 1968, "Bonus Plan Allows Tall Tower":
...he expected the two projects "will really spark redevelopment of James Bay" and city planners indicated they regard them as a turning point in the renewal of the area.

So the current issue of the TC's "Capital Home" magazine tells me that Shellie Gudgeon lives in a Shutters penthouse. Nothing wrong with that, of course. But I'm just wondering how it jibes with her record for supporting such condo developments. Although I suppose somebody could always make the case that 9 or 10 floors on the harbour in Vic West is "good" tall as versus "bad" tall, and that formerly obscene luxury becomes much more wholesome after it ages a few years and has some maintenance issues, etc.
Anyway, I'd file this as yet another example of how a formerly inappropriate and/or threatening development eventually becomes an established and wholesome part of the urban fabric.

^Could be like the vegetarian that is ok buying a leather jacket from the used clothing store. No big deal because the damage has already been done.

FYI, I was actually asking the question. What was her attitude in this regard?
