I don't hate all development. But I respect well-considered development and consideration of the surrounding neighbourhood. The building at Aberdeen and Dundurn could have been even higher, in my opinion, if it had been "stepped in". The way it is, it's boxy and too large for the lot. The lack of ground floor commercial space is a problem and the sidewalk (once it's replaced), will be too narrow. Here's a rough idea of something that would have better suited that lot:

Residents have to live for a long time with the buildings that developers put into neighbourhoods. Ridiculous roadblocks shouldn't be put in the way of all development, but we have to live with the consequences of bad decisions.
