I speak as a Business Futurist & Strategist who has been advocating mixed-use urban development for years. But as I see it, this proposal is behind the times and is not truly a mixed-use community. For example, it plans for only 900 residents but 6,000 office workers. That is completely out of balance and totally ignores the firm and inevitable trend to remote and/or hybrid working. In other words, every resident should be able to find employment in the complex, whether in offices or other commercial establishments. In addition, it needs to specifically mention and make space for hotel accommodations for visitors/tourists, and sufficient medical facilities for all occupants, etc., etc. It must be as close to being a full-service and balanced community as possible. I doubt Toronto Council will approve it as it stands, nor should they. (Forgive me if my knowledge on the project is dated.) Sincerely, Frank Feather.
