Well if you look at the hybrid view on the map it does have the line I drew going through the North part of the parking lot. But from what I remember this is supposed to be an extension of the drive that connects to the other side of Square One at Duke of York Blvd. I think it's supposed to be called Square One Drive? And it's supposed to be lined with retail...

The new extension is just north of the parking lot, not through the north part of it. The road that runs through the Sq.1 parking lot is being rebuilt so it will line up with the new extension.

Oh I thought it was going to be the other way around. Well either way, it's great news :) It's going to be cool to see retail stretch from one side of the mall parking lot through to the other. Less parking lot, the better I say!

Aéropostale is going into the old Jacob Connexion location at Erin Mills Town Centre (Jacob Connexion moved into the old Jacob Jr. location beside Jacob--apparently they're getting rid of Jacob Jr.)

Are they taking over an adjacent space, or just cutting down on the amount of women's clothing? Or maybe like many shopping streets in Europe, there will be more than one H&M?

Square One Drive Retail



Plan for Square One Dr. retail from a source at City Hall. Note the 3 parking garages, 2 [between Wal-Mart & Sears], 5 [beside the transit terminal, across from Sears/Square One Dr.], 8 [between Zellers and Duke of York]). My source says all the parking garages have ground floor retail.

Very interesting stuff, CC....is there a timeframe on any of this? will we be seeing the new parking garages getting built in the near future?

It's an interesting concept, thanks for posting it.

The proposed parking garage on the north side of Square One Drive (top of the diagram) occupies a good deal of the space now used by the transit terminal. I wonder if the transit terminal will be partially on the ground level of this garage? There has been some talk of putting the new east-west busway underground at this point, but I really can't see underground platforms for a dozen bus routes!
