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.

I'm going to be unpopular and NIMBY... but I just moved from living beside a Toronto housing project and it did nothing but bring down the value of the area. No cultural, social, economic contributions... just noise, unkept homes, frequent fire alarms, etc. etc. Homelessness (and under housing) is a serious problem in TO. IF EH is planning to become residential (which I'm not thrilled about) and IF they are going to include affordable housing (which ethically is probably the right thing to do)... there should be a LOT of attention paid to make sure that it's done in a balanced/mixed way and doesn't become a blight on the Leslieville/Riverdale area.

When did residential get introduced? I thought this was a commercial project?!? As a near by resident I'm concerned about the number of people (and infrastructure thereof) in the area. I specifically moved away from King West towards Leslieville for a quieter/calmer vibe. the commercial EH I thought would be OK as it represented 'day time' traffic... but if you've got 1000's of more residents... will there be extra TTC, crosswalks, parks, dog-parks, etc. etc. etc. To address demand.
