Great idea, railway arches would also bring some character

Please prioritize green space and add trees. We dont need more endless concrete. And make it walkable.

Maybe something emulating Borough market in London can exist at east harbour station (as borough is also underneath a junction of a railroad). The marketplace could be underneath the Ontario line overpass and be an all-in -one marketplace of greenery, arts, clothing, music, and food! There are many smaller format retailers selling vintage clothing and doing pop-up markets in the summer with mixed fare such as live music, food events and cultural events. Many of these organizers are on social media and connecting to young audiences, but we also see many pop-up events catering to everyone in the summer in areas like vacant parking lots. This kind of contribution would create a vibrant public realm/walkable district and also be a contribution to the community.

As someone who had the pleasure of visiting the Soap Factory while it was owned by First Gulf, I am of the opinion that, at the least, that building should unequivocally be retained. It will anchor the community and give it both uniqueness and historical relevance. Between the grand column structures on the ground floor, and throughout the building, as well as the rooftop patio space with amazing views of Toronto, I believe that a final vision similar to that of KPMB’s architectural rendering which proposed retaining the building in situ, with additional storeys floating above in shifted volumes, is an absolute must. We'll be kicking ourselves decades from now if we let this thing see a wrecking ball.

You need to focus on the at grade portion of the development - public realm, retail formats, etc. Far too many mixed use developments in Toronto feature anonymous, large format retail and podiums that lack personality or any defining character. Focusing on retail that includes smaller format, varied ceiling heights (the City’s retail standards create standard retail), architectural variation across small sections of retail, etc. Look to existing, mature and successful neighbourhoods for inspiration, not suburban style development in urban areas like East Bayfront or newer developments along Yonge St. Focus on creating a neighbourhood, not a collection of buildings.

Please look at Liberty village and city place as post industrial case studies of what NOT TO DO! There needs to be retail that connects people to the neighborhood. Culturally recognizing the industrial heritage with a look forward including public spaces, green spaces, and transit. KEEP THE HERITAGE COMPONENTS ALIVE! DON’T TEAR IT ALL DOWN.
