Also, significant investments in cycling infrastructure that connect the neighbourhood to adjacent nearby transit connections and adjacent areas of the city.

Public space; to create a high-quality, iconic mixed-use community, emphasis should be placed on high-quality public space and parks.

Housing affordability, small independent retail, and public services to make it a complete community. It won't work to just have residential if we don't also think about necessary things like schools, libraries, and other services.

There are not enough homes in Toronto so I would like as many homes as possible to be built at this site. More homes will help to lower housing prices which are at crisis levels. Homes in the East Harcour will also have a lower carbon footprint because of their proximity to transit and the greater efficiency of heating and cooling non-detached houses. I hope that this site will be built in a way that prioritizes other forms of transit above cars. This will lead to lower pedestrian fatalities and lower carbon emissions.

The placement of residential uses in and amongst the commercial uses needs to be well thought out given the lived experience of City Place. Where possible, residential should be clustered at the edge of the commercial core to create sightlines to the lake to the east, west and south and to the city to the north. Connecting the various residential "neighbourhoods" through paths, parks and bike lanes will build a sense of community and bring people outside and together. A conscious effort to accommodate pets is key. Proper "waste" sites that include artificial turf and the ability for City workers to hose them down are important. Off-leash areas that are well fenced, well lit and include artificial turf will provide a year-round experience for residents and will foster interaction and community building.

This should be built planning for complete, separated, appealing bike infrastructure and safe, comfortable pedestrian transit space connected to public transit so that it's more appealing to walk/bike/use public transit than to drive a car here.
