    I did not see a thread for this one but the building looks pretty cool. The centre is next to Keelesdale Park which contains three soccer fields and a quaint old fashion arena.

    This project is wonderful. The area gets an attractive new landmark and a great community amenity. It'll make the former city of York more attractive as a place to live, which has stagnated and even declined in population. It also makes driving along Black Creek more interesting.

    Guessing the powers-that-be (who don't ride bikes, apparently) didn't install any sort of bicycle racks or stations... yet. With the warm weather lately, they should have done so.

    Would like to see a Next TTC Vehicle Information display at the Centre, so that people could see when the next TTC vehicle will depart at the Black Creek Drive & Eglinton Avenue West intersection.

    I might add a "Line 5 Eglington LRT E...4 years" at the bottom.

    They have been working on landscaping for the past few months, working on planting trees and putting down bark.

    Where are the bicycle racks? Is it last on the things to do list? As usual. Or did they forget about it until someone reminds them.
