Hi. I'm a first-time contributor, long-time follower/reader. I moved to Harris Green because of the Harris Green Village development. As Rob Randall noted above, the Village defines Harris Green, and it's a magnet for the neighbourhood, offering many critical services. As a result, I'm very nervous about redevelopment plans, as there is much more for residents to lose than there is to gain. This isn't a surface parking lot, but an active, successful, and critical development for the neighbourhood. The fact that the Village is owned by non-residents make re-development even riskier.
I'm 100% supportive and excited about increasing residential density (i.e., height), but I hope the Village maintains a wide range of commercial services. It seems that the trend is for fewer, larger commercial tenants, like the gym at Yello, the real estate firm at the Legato, or the Save On on Vancouver/Cook (probably because they're the only ones who can afford the leases). This would be a big step backward for the area.
Just as importantly, I hope any new development maintains or improves on the Village as a hub for people to spend time in. I love how many people are out and about in the Village every day, year round, with many pedestrians and cyclists, people enjoying the street furniture, the flowers outside of LD and Market, the cafe tables outside Market, and the deliberately infuriating parking to discourage drivers. The City has done a terrible job holding developers to high enough standards (translation: hideous designs, low quality construction materials, lack of fit within neighbourhoods, etc.), and I hope residents keep the pressure on for higher quality developments. I'd rather have re-development stall out than go backwards on the urban design.
