It is an iconic store in the area. Every plant we ever planted at my parents’ home came from there.
The connection is not just the store. The redevelopment proposal will be equally iconic in that it sets the tone for, and sets precedent for, how the street is being developed. That in turn defines the LRT’s market.
In my opinion the redevelopment proposal typifies Toronto high-profit, low-peoplecentric condo excess. When it and neighbouring projects are complete, Eglinton will be an uninteresting and unwalkable street that no one will want to visit.
The kind of street where people will continue to travel by car. And not the kind of street where an investment in LRT will pay dividends.
