Please find a way to include some free/low-cost meeting and event space (indoor). Community groups and clubs are so important to civic life but the city provides no infrastructure and there are so few spaces available.

East Harbour will be able to sell itself as an attractive place to live and work only because of how close it is to the thriving mixed-rent high street on Queen St. East, where businesses that could never anchor a condo tower draw in the new homeowners and creatives that live in condo towers: it would be wonderful to see this formally acknowledged through a partnership between the local BIA's and the East Harbour team, so that the neighbourhood as a whole can be made greater than the "sum of parts". I'd like to see more presentation of metrics that demonstrate how the East Harbour and related development is driving the greater success of the community.

how can East Harbour advance indigenous reconciliation? All the project decks start with a land acknowledgement, but then there's no mention of indigenous engagement/involvement/services. Have you engaged this community? What about an indigenous cultura/commercial center? Priority for indigenous-owned businesses?
