To comment on the notion of student housing in multi-residential buildings and the specific proposal at Ewen Rd., I'd like to say I think the neighbourhood association has very valid concerns: First year urban planning students will certainly be familiar with the concept of 'eyes-on-the-street' design which is possible in low to medium rise development, but which is loss on higher rise developments.

I'm sure the developer has a business plan to maximize profits, but I hope and expect that some compromise can be reached so that the final development would be no higher than the building going up on the CNIB property, and preferably fit within the secondary plan document. As Highwater point out, others are making profits on smaller developments.
