Some possible solutions include bringing the TTC to the site, a pedestrian link to the GO station as well as creating an underground tunnel off Steeles Avenue that goes directly into the parking bay, rather than relying on traffic signals, similar to what is used at IBM.
Another proposed feature of the shopping centre is its combination of conventional heating and cooling systems with one of Canada’s largest geothermal systems. The combination system will help save more than 40 per cent of the centre’s energy consumption, Mr. Lawrence said.
“All these small things seem simple,” he said. “But they each add a layer to the building.”
Other initatives that makes this complex unique include the large amount of glass to allow in natural light, the white roof that will not absorb heat, in-ground heating and a 750-seat food court.
The project also includes a parking structure with about 3,500 parking spaces.
Currently the developer is in the construction drawings process and does expect to start construction until 2014, with an expected opening in 2016.
Phase two of the project consists of two residential condominium towers as well.
Remington Centre sales office is set to open in the spring.

I guess that podium under the towers won't be part of the mall. If so, it'd be a waste of prime street frontage. It'd be better if the site can be rearranged so the mall entrance is closer to the street.

Just got word that Remington's big, splashy sales centre should be open in about 4 weeks time. Apparently they've really outdone themselves as they would like to retain the centre to market future projects once this one is complete.

mind you, given the financial difficulties the asian mall at 16th and Woodbine as well as the one at Kennedy and the 407 have experienced, I'm doubtful.
Funny thing is - I hear though the grape vine that the one at 16th and Woodbine isn't going too well either. Nothing concrete though (mind the pun). However, the one at Kennedy & 407 seems to be doing alright. The anchor: T&T seems to be doing some business - though probably not what they have expected; but things take time to pick up - just like the original P mall back then.

I see this as a safer bet in that it's already established and next to P-Mall. In general though, there has to be a saturation point with all these similar malls being built (or at least proposed). It's not as if Markham is somehow under retailed.

http://www.yorkregion.com/news-story/6312013-lack-of-agreement-stalls-markham-retail-hub-s-redevelopment/

Redevelopment of a major retail destination in Markham appears to have stalled over a lack of agreement over parking, roadways and connections between shopping centres, a city committee heard this week.

The fact the project borders the City of Toronto also means additional approvals are needed.

Plans to rebuild Pacific Mall and Market Village at Steeles Avenue and Kennedy Road have been bogged down because of the multitude of property owners who have a say over the plans, councillors heard this week.

However the mayor argued there are no fundamental changes being made. The plan is to still have one integrated site. He said parking and roadways are minor variances that can be worked out and urged the parties to work together.

Looks like issues with getting agreements from the P-Mall and its wide range of owners. Plus the Steeles Avenue grade seperation project seems to thrown a bit of an additional wrench in it.
