The CBC has a long report on a proposed development near the Junction that involves our councillor, Frances Nunziata. Nunziata voted for a development that would allow towers that are too tall and too close to the railway tracks, and she did so despite the recommendations of city staff.
… city planners have deemed this plan inappropriate for a variety of reasons, outlined in a staff report, saying:
- The buildings would be located too close to the neighbouring rail line.
- The proposed buildings would be more than twice the height allowed for any development on that site.
- The buildings would be located too close to each other.
Residents living on the upper floors of the proposed condominiums might suffer “unacceptable levels of odour” from a nearby rubber recycling plant.
The report also notes that the project “could result in an unsafe and inappropriate living environment.”
