- The proposal by the Gupta Group, at 25 stories located on the top of a hill, will tower high above existing and proposed developments.
- It establishes a very dangerous and potentially devastating height precedent for higher development up and down Bayview and beyond Glenvale.
- If approved, it will result in the inevitable loss of charm, character and privacy of our neighbourhood.
- The proposal does not consider allowances for affordable housing.

- Additional strain on community resources and infrastructure including schools.

With the prospect of this 25-story high-rise tower looming, and if approved, precedent for other tall buildings that fail to respect good planing principles will follow. Now is the time to act!
- Please donate generously to our defence fund and help us reach our fundraising goal.
