That's a lot of surface parking for something 800 metres from an LRT station.
Why would anyone walk from LRT Station on Eglinton to here,... they would go to the SmartCentre in the middle with the Winners, BestBuy, SportChek, Sobeys, LCBO, HomeDepot, etc,...

pretty sure the poster isnt suggesting that this is a great place for shopping since transit riders can access it but rather it is a poor use of land which could be used for condos which would add more riders to the lrt network.

Even then,... at 800m from LRT station, it’s not within the 500m the Province would target for intensification near subway (underground LRT) station. Then you add City’s Secondary Plan for the area - which the City think would over-ride Provincial planning - that was prior to Doug Ford,...

Expect more with the replacement Canadian Tire for the one at Eglinton/Laird too. The good news is the area closest to the station will at least be losing surface parking.

Where exactly is the replacement Canadian Tire going to be located?

Nope, the site behind the current store - between Vanderhoof and Wicksteed.
I guess that’s the stalled site that was originally supposed to be for Walmart,... until retail market crashed last year

I thought it crazy to build a Longos beside a foul smelling waste collection facility but, I have been proven wrong.
