Thanks for the heads-up, shoeflack!

 

12 two-storey townhomes with rooftop terraces, plus 12 studio apartments are slated for the green space between James Bay's Charter House and Regent Tower residential buildings.

OMG. I absolutely nailed the objections:

Nparker, on 13 Mar 2018 - 2:03 PM, said:


How long before someone complains it's too tall, too dense, too many trees are being removed, it's too expensive and will have an adverse affect on traffic/parking. In other words, the same objections made every single time increased density is proposed.

 

...C: lives in 3 unit townhouse down the street, with 2 parking spaces/unit, underground, doesn’t believe proposal has adequate parking – will be a lot of push-back since inadequate parking

C: Trees 4 existing tress marked for removal (not 2 as stated) – doesn’t believe parking will be adequate ...
...Q: 415 Michigan resident – concerned about loss of green space in JB – feels the existing green space has been a part of the community for the last 45 yrs+ there is too much density in the area. Feels new structure will be a blight – and cost will require more than what is proposed for number of residents per unit.
...C: don’t need luxury housing

I already own property.  Please don't let more people live around here it will make things more difficult for me.

What I find terribly ironic is that they need to rezone because the proposed building isn't tall enough

Seems pretty disrespectful to the neighbouring buildings to build such a low-density low-height building there.

^You absolutely nailed it!

 

I've parked around there before and the residents feel they own the on street parking.  Luckily I got all the tickets squashed

This one continues to march along, and the Dev Tracker indicates that staff review is done and it'll be off to CotW, though no date is given. Despite going through 6 revisions, it looks basically the same as the first proposal at the top of this page.

 

Dev Tracker is here: https://tender.victo...Number=REZ00637

 

Given the amount of pain Starlight is going through for these 24 townhouse units in James Bay, I wonder how they're feeling about their Harris Green investment...

2 years in the approval process for a relatively small project like this is unacceptable.

When Victoria was smaller it built bigger, but now that Victoria is bigger it builds smaller. Did I mention the housing crisis is soon to be celebrating its 75th birthday?
