This prospective development site returns from the dead.........

According the Lobbyist Registry anyway....

Bennett Jones is lobbying on behalf of 22 Metropolitan Road Inc. with Sunray Group listed as 'other beneficiary'

Since we don't have images in this thread, I shall add some.

This site is a former motel/hotel which sits adjacent to the 401 at Warden Avenue.

Here we are looking south, away from the 401, Warden Avenue is just out of the picture to the right.
