Similar to the Welsford, I think that this has potential
to integrate well with the neighbourhood around it.
Realistically, if this site has permission to build a high structure it should be taken advantage of, but otherwise I think there are better locations a large development like this. Not because it would harm the neighbourhood that it is in, but because this neighbourhood doesn't offer much for transit or shopping.
Ideally, of course the parking lot should be replaced. I would prefer detached or semi detached homes. It would be great if the "air rights" could be transferred to another spot. I don't even mean this needs to be downtown, but putting this right on the corner of Craigmore/Dutch Village would be a bit better. Closer to the rotary would be better still.
