I think you are promoting a false choice. It is possible to develop this property from an eyesore into a dense, attractive urban building without being overly insensitive to the needs of neighboring property owners.

Doing something is not itself better than doing nothing, it only matters if what you do is good. Take for example the new condo at Aberdeen and Dundern. Sure, a dense residential development there is better than an empty lot, but that doesn't mean we have to be happy with the outcome. The first two floors are parking garage, and contribute nothing to the street itself other than extra light pollution at night. Just because something happened there does not at all mean that we have to be happy with how poorly executed it was.
