Nunziata approves controversial Junction tower

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.”

  1. What careful city planning we have when this kind of thing is approved. What about the 30-storey tower with the podium at Weston and Lawrence that’s planned?
    It’s a bad day’s work for our councillor.
