This is important for seniors, as well as housing affordability for artists. Wychwood barns is the only community like this I know.

Do what you can to inspire animation on buildings such as lighting displays at night as well as neon lights alongside retail streets, something that will POP out to locals and visitors when looking for a place to explore. A way to bring in life here is to create a visual gateway that people would be drawn to from afar. In the same way that the CN tower lights up, it would be good to see similar activation here and other original and unique ideas to draw people here while walking on the waterfront etc. It be nice to see nightlife options and a culture where people don't commute home straight after work. Bring soul and entertainment back here to Toronto post-covid.

I am worried considering Adamson's portfolio that we will see a lot of the same kinds of buildings like we have seen in Canary Wharf and Hudson yards where all of the buildings are glass but slightly different in shape. Please ensure that are international design competitions for the buildings — If all of the buildings are typical what we have seen in the past, and if they all 'blend in' to downtown, it will not speak to the longevity of this site in coming decades. consider design as heritage, something that will speak to future generations and something that is of high importance.

While I agree, a grocery store is not going to 'inject life' into this future world-class development. It will certainly be convenient and important, but it is galleries, venues, museums or lake cultural anchors, sports, shopping, bars etc that will inject life here. These social anchors will draw a crows past 5pm and inject more of a work/live balance in toronto
