Dundas West/ Bloor Mobility Hub +interconnected hub network (Metrolinx)

I'm a big fan of the Crossways' brick Brutalist architecture, it doesn't seem to be well managed based on the state of the retail part of the mall and the fact that they rejected a direct connection to the subway.

It was originally an impressively metropolitan development that was ahead of its time with apartments, a mall, and office space in a single complex adjacent to the subway. It would be unfortunate to see it torn down.

It was contemporaneous with other - in my opinion, better - examples: Manulife Centre, Yonge-Eglinton Centre and the Yonge-Sheppard Centre.

As discussed in this thread at least once before, the Crossways (mini)mall closes in the evening and is not open on holidays, which wouldn't work well with having a subway entrance inside it..
That sounds like the north end exit to the Northbound platform at Davisville. Not saying it’s a reason to do it a second time, just saying there’s a precedent.
