I don't see that the "public good" is automatically served by putting 11 storeys on that site. Why? Assessment cannot be the only criterion for development. If that were so then we would carry through the original owner's plans for Bayfront Park and sell it for towers - to the detriment of the public and also to the many private interests in the area -- including the "private benefit" of the developer of Witton Lofts.

The problem here is not only that there is to be no discussion about what criteria should prevail, but more fundamentally, that it is not clear than the City has the tools to achieve what the councillor says he wants to achieve.
