Recommended Preferred Precinct Plans for the Burlington MTSA - means what they plan to build around the GO station

BURLINGTON, ON

 

The hot development action has always been south of Caroline, clustered along Lakeshore road.

The long term growth of the city is going to be around the GO stations that are now also known as MTSA’s – Major Transit Service Areas – that will have GO service, local transit service, as well as anything else that transports people coming together in the same spot.

The Recommended Preferred Precinct Plans for the Burlington MTSA.

Residential development will be significant with clusters that include, 5, 6, 7 or even 8 high rise towers and all the social amenities.  Get used to a new one: linear parks which is another phrase for a path with some grass.

The Recommended Preferred Precinct Plans for the Burlington GO station set out above identify the name of the precinct they are in but provide no detail on what the zoning is for each precinct. Presumably that will follow.  What you get at this point is a pretty graphic.

A rendering of what the Burlington GO station now looks like. The housing that will be built in the immediate area will be in the 3500+ population range

    Interesting to have to mentally sort out in one hand what is a climate change crisis, and in the other hand seeing leadership going the route of aggressive multi towers with “paths with grass”! Our forests and green land are our source of earth’s filter for air quality for humans, animals, birds, etc. Are we truly serious on the scientists reports of earth’s extreme climate situation, or do we just move forward and deal with what we can’t, at a later date??

      So you would prefer to pave our urban areas instead?
      Population growth is a reality that needs to be dealt with and there are only two options. They can build up, or build out.
