Simple solution to the shadowing issue... Build the tower with lots of windows to let the sunlight shine right through!

Or mirrors, and redirect the sunlight onto the Jesse Ketchum playground.

There's no playground or at least I can't remember one there. Taller private buildings over public space. That's a way to build long lasting, high demand communities.

No. It's mainly about the trees and public space. It's the pro heigthers that have made it all about the children in the school's playground. Not that you care about anything beyond the skyline from Don Mills. However, people have to live in that skyline. These amenities add to the quality of life which is the long term viability of the growing skyline than the real estate boom.

I know both Yorkville Square and Cumberland Square have been registered, as has Yorkville Residences (at Yorkville Square?)

Sounds like we have a massive complex underway.

You're an insider now! Lol.
