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.
