Read through the site plan docs (thanks Hamilton Forward), can really see all the tools in the chest coming out to stall or stop the development - everything from a bird study, to minor variances, to the need for hundreds of more parking spaces and "incompatible" height step-downs.

Is this a revised/ updated plan for this project? None of those towers appear to be over 50 stories.

EDIT: Sorry, I spoke before reading the panning document. It stills lists the originally proposed heights. Not sure why this rendering doesn't add up for me...
Anyway, given the conformity to the zoning requirements, what does planning committee have to do with this?

City Council voted to remove delegated authority on this file. Usually, site plan approvals are given without a council vote. But given the size of this application, and the political realities, city council will have to eventually vote on whether or not they give site plan approval.

Of course, I’m sure legal will flesh out the repercussions of denying the application - straight to LPAT where they can get their permit.

Edit: I believe this is an older rendering. I am not sure though. Just interesting to see the variation of renders and plans.

Looks like the city has made 3D models of these towers to the 3D model of Hamilton. It starts at 0:04.

1,836 units. Holy crap. Talk about density!

Also 2,445 vehicle parking spaces!

This thing is nuts all around. I would love to see it built just because, well why the hell not.

It is a little disappointing not to see this density downtown though.

The new design is much more elegant almost One Bloor like just with balconies. Much better podium and green space and the entry/exit to the parking garage is vastly improved. I'm a little shocked they chopped so many 2 bedroom units though, they don't think families would like to live here? They must be targeting singles or couples with no kids that will live here and commute.

You’d probably end up with about 3,000 people living in the complex.

Wow, love that they're sticking to the same proposed height and density! Hopefully this is the catalyst for improved transit service along the waterfront. As someone who lives almost across the street I'm looking forward to the commercial and restaurant space in the podium.

Have they moved to underground as well as above-ground for parking? Seems like the parking structure was significantly reduced in size.

I think the footprint is smaller but also taller. It's 6 levels now while it used to be 4 I believe.

Three levels of underground by the looks of it.

The podium change is a huge improvement. Tower designs too.

I'm less critical of the height and location of these now... whatever happened in the planning dept. to miss the overlooked zoning issue (vis-a-vis the city's building height limit policy) is water that has flowed way, way under the bridge.

The opportunity now is better transit along the lake shore and around the eastern Stoney Creek urban area, and perhaps some improvements to the service roads and city arterial streets that connect with them.

I too wish these could be downtown. But at some point the city will have to relax its standards if downtown development takes off like it's proposed to. Will it, is the question.
