CLOSED: This discussion has concluded.

I don't believe that to achieve the desired result, that the developers *need* to have their building be 22 stories. There is another apartment building a block away that is 16 stories and, even though it's been there for a long time, it looks off among all the houses and low-rise apartments. I am also not sure how viable ground-level residential units would be close to a transit center and in a generally busy, mainly commercial area. I think it would be better to keep the lower levels as commercial and preserve the vibes of the area, as well as promote business growth. Adjusting the setback is justified, but other than that, I see no real need to modify the zoning.

4 more stories is no big deal. Density in this area is the goal and everything should be done to foster that. I support approval.

TLDR: Height increase = good, commercial uses = mandate along sheltered walkway and in places along transit centre, ground floor residential uses = good everywhere else, as long as street oriented

Height Limit Increases: This is very good, the area surrounding the transit centre and LRT stations should house as many people as possible, and there is no reason that we shouldn't allow taller towers here. It is far away from where people live, and close to many current and future amenities. Please accept the height limit increases

Setbacks: If Mill Woods Town Centre is meant to be an urban neighbourhood core, it is important that we design in ways that make the neighbourhood and streets feel enclosed and sheltered. Increasing the minimum setback does not accomplish this, and will make the neighbourhood feel more desolate. If proximity to traffic is an issue, the construction of boulevards with trees will increase the distance between traffic and front doors, and improve the streetscape.

Residential Uses: The station ARP does in my opinion demand too much commercial for what would be viable in the area. As long as ground level residences are street oriented I see no problem allowing them on some sides of buildings. However there are some places where I think that commercial should be mandated in order the make use of improved public infrastructure, and help shape Mill Woods into a dense urban core. Those areas are: along the entire stretch of the pedestrian pathway connecting the LRT and transit centre, as this area sees the highest foot traffic in the whole district, and is important to animate (the most important thing we can do for the future of this node is build this corridor into a vibrant space), and to a lesser extent, commercial uses should be scattered along the transit centre for people waiting for their buses

Great start. Approving this is a no brainer, we should remove the red tape and allow for more development including higher zoning.
