The purpose of community engagement should be to make developments better, not to prevent them from going ahead.

What if the community is opposed to development? Is that allowed, or is all development an unquestioned "good", with design refinements being the only function of community engagement.

Personally, I don't see a problem with the height being proposed ... that would be a nice mid-rise addition to the area. The proposal itself is nothing special design-wise, though. Pretty standard modern slab block condo apartments from the look of it. And Screencarp has a point about them looking like a long monolith. The other concerns, re: traffic, noise, environmental impacts, and so forth, are probably overblown.
