Controls on Little Italy Growth?

A new proposal has come forth on the Little Italy redevelopment in Ottawa.  The main points are:
• let developers construct 40-storey buildings along Carling
• allow 18-storey buildings all along Rochester;
• allow nine-storey buildings along the O-Train tracks just west of Preston; and
• build new roads along the tracks and bridges across it to handle the expected extra traffic

Some local merchants and residents say "Preston Street’s Little Italy would be ruined by taller buildings and a new road along the O-Train tracks".  Read complete story here
