  • an increase in affordable housing units from 411 to 540
  • an increase in market residential floor area
  • decrease in the footprint of underground parking structures to increase opportunities for tree retention and stormwater management
  • clarification of the vision for the overall site, the urban farm and neighbourhood precincts
  • redesign of public spaces including the plaza and high street to accomodate a more diverse range of uses
