The corner of Main St. and Broadway where The Independent condo development will sit is the source of a lot of debate within the Mount Pleasant community. Many groups have been vocal in their opposition of any project being built. But the city has applied strict conditions to the project based around public greenspace, community amenities and social outreach. The developers seem anxious to exceed those asks to create a landmark development that will become the spark for positive change in the Mount Pleasant neighbourhood.
