It is a rare opportunity to advance a "master-planned" block on this scale; please begin in the public realm/urban design phase to incorporate significant investment into sub-grade tree infrastructure for their initial establishment and long term growth. Hardscape infrastructure for trees should be appropriate and mindful of soil cell infrastructure, stormwater capture, 70cm + openings on tree pit covers, non-invasive irrigation systems, spacing of plantings, and removal of tree lighting to ensure a thriving canopy. Go above and beyond City of Toronto's Community Planning, Urban Design, and Urban Forestry requirements as they are proven insufficient. Additionally, MLA's will likely be limited in what they know about native tree establishment and growth in urban settings - especially if this is tender is awarded outside of the Province or Country. Seek strong arboricultural advisors to ensure the City and the district inherits tree assets that contribute more than cost.

Parks, restaurants, cafes and a grocery store will all attract people to the area and inject life and local energy into the new development. Do not repeat city place, where uninteresting, chain stores and fast food did not create a culture people wanted to stay in (initially they all headed north to Queen/King).
