If Dockside Green were up-zoned to alllow 20 - 30 storey buildings with an FSR of 5-10/1 it would be built out now and that would be a thriving mixed use community.


That area shouldn't even have FSR maximums.

Without an agreed upon FSR allowance to point at, each developer would have to haggle with Council for every square foot during the Development Permit review process. That's an unknown that many developers and financers would not want to face.

It's been a long time without updates on this one. The now faded signs still talk of a clearly impossible summer 2020 opening. Hope to see some movement on this soon!

Perhaps they plan to go head-to-head with the opening of the brewpub at Hudson Walk<_<
