Pedestrian and cyclist access should be the priority in planning the transportation aspects of the development.

Residential uses should be for all and affordable housing allocation should follow City inclusive zoning guidelines. Residential buildings should be no taller than those in West Don Lands directly across the Don River. up to 65 storeys belong at Yonge and Bloor and in the downtown core.

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?

When walking around streets of Europe past 5pm, one can not help but feel the spirit of the neighbourhood come to life when seeing families roam the streets and squares, wondering into cute shops or simply sitting on 'the Spanish steps.' East Harbour needs this European flare to it, to recenter how busy urban centres in North American can slow down and how streets can be built for *people* I would love to see ample seating areas, otherworldly concept stores, and prioritising unique experiences that aren't normally found in Toronto. I think tattoo parlours and cultural establishments should be seen just as important as bakeries and coffee shops. I want it to be people friendly with string lighting, vendors, late night food market places and a place of POP-ups. Pop-up stores allow the ability to try new concepts out, test ideas and create an ever-changing ecosystem for experiences. Experiences and people contribute to a city's identity and global competitiveness. 30 million tourists don't come to Toronto because they want to sit in a bank tower and check out 'economic development'. Visitors want to be a part of the city's soul, neighbourhoods are part of that. We need to think of this new commercial district as a neighbourhood, where Christmas markets can coexist alongside rush-hour crowds of workers. In thinking about how we 'build back better' after the pandemic, we HAVE to think CULTURE not commerce. Experiences in a city matter.

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.

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.
