I think the planners/those approving the developments want the the ground floor “activated” with businesses/retail. I guess what’s the alternative? Just a foyer or a ground floor apartment?
I think more of the building's common amenities -- gyms, theatres, kitchens etc -- could be located at ground, especially in buildings where there's no special outlook to warrant them being at a higher level. That way you're getting activity and passive surveillance at street level (instead of vacant shopfronts) and extra apartments in the freed space above.

In saying that, I don't have a problem with commercial or retail in this location. The concern should be about its proposed ground level parking.
It's only 8 levels of apartments. Maybe shopfronts with a row of parking behind is more space-efficient than shops on all sides and a driveway to elevated parking. The post doesn't say how many parking spaces are needed or how they are arranged.
