I'm for all kinds of notions of increased density, but not 30 floors and not there.

I'm not sure I understand why. I agree that all the downtown lots should be filled, but Durand still has some unused parcels of land. It looks like there are more 20+ storey buildings there already than anywhere else in town.
I think a new design, highlighting the new Hamilton would be a great fit in the midst of the 70's towers.

Vancouver just went through this whole discussion a few years ago. They realized they were running out of land and it was time to get rid of the height restrictions. They are now seeing their tallest ever towers built as a result.
