I'd love to see a thriving arts&culture community. Please don't just designate or silo 'cultural space' as it's own thing. Consider these as opportunities for employment in towers. I'd like to see more arts groups, organisations and international design/film/music industries occupy the buildings. An example is how a major video game company Ubisoft opened up a location in Le Plateau, Montreal because of its creative scene. Attract more local and international creative companies like that and grow our artistic influence on the world.

Not just in subway stations, but also in squares or public spaces... Advanced video projections instead of screens, or more self-serve grocers/self-serve advanced kiosks etc. Experiment a little bit in East Harbour, it could be a place where anything can happen, where ideas are tested in all fields.

if we are building to the 2030s make sure that the future is innovative here. Sidewalk labs google smart city has failed but there was much to take away about data collection and privacy. make east harbour the place to be for innovation, and also keep I mind how innovation could attract visitors. Many cities across the world in places like Germany or Asia have advanced tech like AI or unique tech installations in subway stations. Explore how East Harbour's attractions can be a mix of technology and art. This might sound goofy but think about similar technology proposed for sidewalk labs, hire a third party to think about innovation and building a neighbourhood of the future.
