How high the sky?

Comparison of the towers coming to Bloor Dufferin

Richard Male, a local resident, put together this graph that illustrates how high the proposed condo and apartment towers are in comparison to existing buildings. The luxury towers slated for the school lands and the parking lots at Dufferin mall are way out of scale in comparison to what already exists in our neighbourhood.

On the left are existing high rises in our neighbourhood; 919 Bloor, for example, is the New Horizon Towers.

TTC Riders, a transit advocacy group, has stirred up a storm about our favourite bus route…the Sufferin’ Dufferin 29. That’s what one protestor wrote on a sign at a July 25 morning rush hour demonstration at the Dufferin station.

Here’s a CTV report and one from CityTV. But what about the developers proposing massive condo and apartment towers for our community, do they have a responsibility to improve our public transit. A few ideas about what they could do to help move buses and transit through the Bloor Dufferin intersection.

Have your say before it’s all destroyed
