You're right - it's terrible - pedestrians would be forced to the Auckland Road entrance by the passenger pick up area. I could see people saying screw this and using the bus loop ramp, especially when heading back to their cars. You almost need a parking lot shuttle.Anyone using that lot would be in for a very long walk: It almost looks as though the distance to Islington station would be shorter than walking over to Kipling unless an eastern entrance to that station is constructed.
Even when the development happens, Etobicoke gets the worst architecture outside of the Humber Bay area. There has been nothing built along Dundas in Etobicoke of significant architectural value in the past 10 years.How new are those renderings?
I'm extremely frustrated by the lack of action on this site. Here we are 7 long years after re-development of the site was first proposed, yet this horrific, dilapidated, 95% abandoned mall continues to rot away. It's made worse by the fact that there are now several other sites along this stretch of Dundas that have become abandoned eyesores. There seems to be an unending parade of massive development proposals along the south side basically from Subway Crescent all the way to the East Mall, yet years go by without any activity on any of the sites. It's driving me crazy! I grew up in the area and have always hated it, so forgive me for being a little impatient with wanting to see it properly urbanize.
Apart from a few handsome mid-century towers and a couple of quirky auto dealerships from the same era, was there ever?Even when the development happens, Etobicoke gets the worst architecture outside of the Humber Bay area.
