The area was originally supposed to be the fourth suburban "City Centre". The other three, Etobicoke, North York, and Scarborough, all ended up happening in some form, with North York being by far the most successful.

This one never took off as it never got a transit connection.

Wonder if the name Kodak Heights will catch on again.

A couple articles on the history of the area, and a Mount Dennis Mobility Hub Study. The piece by Ryerson also includes some interesting photos of the old Kodak complex:

At the moment, it looks like a "Santa Christmas Wish" for Choice Properties REIT.

The current lease for the No Frills on the property expires in 2027. So nothing until then.

No Frills and Choice are related; they are both Weston-owned businesses.

The No Frills will relocate when the Westons would like to proceed.

They will almost certainly move on-site and not close, the site is amply large for that.

A bicycle path and pedestrian walkway is needed that follows Black Creek itself, not Black Creek Drive, from Weston Road/Eglinton Avenue West to Jane Street/Maple Leaf Drive.

The paths should be permeable to allow rainwater to seep through into a dry well, and not to add to the flooding of Black Creek.

If this project moves at usual Toronto snail's pace, Black Creek Drive is not in danger to lose its cheapest gas station.
