The building was reduced in size because it is not compatible with the surrounding 2-4 storey structures around it. Hamilton's OP encourages higher intensification on arterial roads, however the new development must be compatible with everything around it. The new OP states:

3.3.1.8 Promote intensification that makes appropriate and innovative use of buildings
and sites and is compatible in form and function to the character of existing
communities and neighbourhoods.

Based on the above wording it's clear that an 8 storey building surrounded by 2-4 storey structures is not compatible as it relates to form.
