The History of Extreme Intensification in Parkdale
All text the group,
Developers always present their condo developments as supplying much needed intensification, to create affordability. Parkdale, however, is extremely intensified already. We already have very affordable apartments in the large houses and apartment buildings on almost all streets; and the most affordable housing is above the commercial buildings which are in danger of demolition to make way for new condos. Parkdale needs to retain its existing commercial strip. Our still intact heritage village will increasingly attract tourism to our businesses. Toronto City planners have made careful plans to make all of this work. I hope profit driven development corporations and LPAT “red tape” cutters are not permitted to undo that good work. We have too much homelessness already.
