chat with local architects and developers from Hamilton and Toronto and they will confirm your concerns. We are losing a TON of investment by having a pile of unnecessary hurdles to high quality, urban development projects. Even boring little Burlington is outpacing us and allowing buildings taller near the 407 than we allow downtown on King St:

Developers know there is such a hunger for high quality, urban-focused development right through urban and suburban centres in the Golden Horseshoe that they are more than happy to pass us by and our dinky little 4 or 15 storey height restrictions, even in neighbourhoods with 25-45 storey buildings already in existence. More arbitrary red-tape in the Hammer.
