Toronto Council has approved the city’s first car-free condominium on University Avenue – over the objection of some councillors who said residents in the 42-storey building wouldn’t be able to manage without at least some parking.

“The rationale was that this is going to be an experiment,” said Scarborough Agincourt Councillor Mike Del Grande. “This is an awfully risky experiment. It doesn’t coincide with other office buildings in the area. And somebody somewhere in another part of the city is going to point to this and say, ‘you allowed this.'”
