Small new park may be created downtown

To counter the loss of the Domtar garden downtown, which will soon have a condo building on it, Mayor Plante is proposing to turn a nearby parking lot owned by the city into a green space. However, the McCord Museum had had its eye on this space for a new building.

At the same time, the HEC wants the lot south of St Patrick’s, which would obliterate another of the dwindling supply of green spaces downtown. Via reddit, here’s the link to the church bulletin explaining the church view of the project, and this from HEC.

Shouldn’t there be a policy mandating a certain percentage of open space to make the jungle of tall buildings humanly tolerable?
