This could have been a swap, making construction much easier for the developer and putting the land back into the escarpment open space. Next step would be linking the escarpment to the shore and beginning to grow back a green web through the lower city.

Intensification talk is a whole other subject that needs some detailed criticism. Incidentally, the supposed advantage of building where the infrastructure already exists is nonexistent here. If my memory is correct, the proponent has to install 300K of water/wastewater capacity to service this project - in fact, he wanted to city to pay half, a notion which staff rejected in their report on the project. Never did hear how that was settled.
