also focus on creating streets prioritising people, not for cars. It is time to take car-dependency North American mindset away from Toronto.

Nightlife. Young people in Toronto want more options that don't close so early. A way to keep East Harbour afloat past 5pm is to bring in a wide range of bars, clubs and cultural options that go through the night. Knowing Torontonians, I know noise is going to be a concern, so look at ways venues can reduce noise through insulation or certain design elements. We have to remember we are in a large city, a noise is inevitable. We have lost over a dozen music venues because of the pandemic, it is at a dire situation for us in the music/entertainment industry. The cultural industries are the hardest hit industry and it expected to take the longest to recover. Ensure East Harbour can accommodate a large number of these types of establishments to position Toronto as a competitive place to 'have fun'. Unfortunately, Montreal is the cultural capital of Canada... but East Harbour should seek to challenge this. Retail should be unique, focusing on shops that you wouldn't normally find in other retail districts downtown. Perhaps local designers, or international designers looking to open a staple Canadian location. Please ensure Live music and live performance is engrained in East Harbour's DNA, as well as give opportunities to artists/buskers being pushed out of Toronto.

Community Arts and Culture are very important. One of the most driving factors of living in Toronto is the amazing culture and art we have in the city. This development needs to consider this an a important feature of the space. Development should also consider access to space for artists and a space of gathering and events for the public. Similar to the front street promenade.

I hate to keep beating a dead horse but look to Montreal on how they bring community, business & after 5pm crowds together, we need walkable streets no cars, with cafes, restaurants, retail & entertainment. Some form of access to the river would nice if possible, use Chicago as the example. You have a blank canvas here use it. People in Toronto continually mention on how great & fun Montreal is well here is our chance lets get it right.

A mixture of uses is key, the days of having single-use office districts has surely passed. If residential isn't permitted this risks being a ghost town similar to what the king and bay financial district was a decade ago and would be a missed opportunity.
