Not sure there's a more car-dependent spot you could put senior and still be in the city.

It’s a pretty long walk to the Bryn Mawr LRT from this even crossing the highway ped bridge.

Includes a greenhouse! I'd like more non-senior developments with specific gardening amenities, please. The AMP house (RIP) is the only one I've seen proposed.

Not sure why this would be considered car-dependent. It is directly on the #9 bus route that goes downtown.

What are bus frequencies for the nine in this area?

Looks like approximately half-hourly from 5:30am to 11pm, with a couple more spaced out trips after that.

That’s not bad. Definitely could be better.

It all depends on how they make the pedestrian realm. They need to make it easy to get from the building to the bus stop. They will also need to add a Bench and shelter. About how long would it take someone to get from here to downtown?

They've already updated the bus stop a bit so that it has a proper place to stand. The Google image is outdated. I would hope that they would add a shelter at some point. Also, for some reason the manholes on that stretch of road are oddly deep which makes for a bumpy ride.

Wasn’t the 9 being increased in frequency?
