Developers should be lining up to take CN to the OMB. CN's rail corridor through downtown Toronto with as many as 8 lanes of track in some places drives right through the middle of condo alley. Solution? Concrete noise barriers and walls. There is absolutely nothing stopping the same solution here, throw in landscaped berms to absorb the noise from the rail yard.

CN should not be a shackle on the progress of this city and its development. The future is up not out, 8 stories is ridiculous. I'm in agreement with those that suggest this is NIMBY ism by some that live in the area. The West Harbour precinct has the potential to be spectacular and truly drive change in the downtown. Stunted, uninspiring and underwhelming thinking should not be allowed to win the day.
