a piece of property located 100 meters from a GO Station

Even six stories is inadequate density so close to a train station. The current application at McNab and Stuart for 11 stories with commercial at ground level is more reasonable for something so close to a GO railway station.

My concern would be that as some form of public housing, there will be political pressure for too low density, such as only six stories. In this particular case, selling the property to a private developer will mean that public good of high density in this location will align with the private benefit of obtaining maximum profit through higher density.
