The St. Lawrence Neighborhood is over 200 years old and is an historic part of Toronto.

In 2005, after years of consultation with City Planners, Historians, local residents and businesses, a code was established to protect the beauty, charm and heritage of the area by limiting the height of buildings within a very small area of 'Ole Toronto.

Throughout the downtown core of the City towering condominiums blanket the skyline. This is one small historic part of town the needs to be preserved.

Stop Freed Developments from ruining a part of Toronto that dates back to the 17th century.

      The St Lawrence neighbourhood is one of the handful of remaining (small) historic districts that represent the foundations and historical roots of the whole (larger) Toronto community. It would be reckless to bury it - to snuff out the vibrancy of its living history - beneath a forest of tall, dominating light- and life-sucking towers, simply for today's cash-hungry commercial and municipal purposes. Once history is gone, it's gone forever. Remember the old City Hall and the community effort that saved it from the wrecker's ball. Let's gather support and fight for the eight-storey height restriction in the St Lawrence historic neighbourhood. We cannot let mean commercial purposes destroy this unique community that so richly enhances our city!

      Aside from another tall building blocking the sun, it does not fit the neighbourhood...some areas should be left as they are because that is why folks move into them in the first place.

      Because I believe the City has an obligation to its citizens to uphold the rules and regulations set out for the St. Lawrence Market area building restrictions. It would be a travesty of justice to allow Mr. Freed to build according to the current plan.
