I agree with everything in this article. I don't believe the Connolly "sets a precedent" for all of James Street. James South and James North are two different districts, neighbourhoods and heritage environments.

There is not an either/or decision here on developing the Tivoli site or "greenfield" sites. As stated in the article, there are plenty of poorly developed or parking lot sites within spitting distance of the Tivoli that would better suit a development of this kind.

And, since the Diamantes basically received this site for free, I don't understand the math behind the "22 stories and 106 units are required to make this development worthwhile".

I agree with the BNA and planning staff on this. Good luck with your efforts to have a better design for this site.
