I'm actually kind of disappointed that they aren't planning on going denser when the plaza gets redeveloped. I get adding in the dedicated park space and the community usage, but that top portion at the intersection of Hurontario and Eglinton should be much denser.

I assume those are just conceptual drawings and given that they probably won’t get to phase 2 for at least 10 years, lots of things can/will change.

Exactly, here's hoping. Despite plans for new density where the plaza is, that far-off plan is totally basic and without an ounce of vision.

They are being quite deliberate by proposing the first phases along Sorrento Drive. Once built-out, I am sure they'll revise plans for the plaza at even higher densities than on Sorrento Drive.

More often than not though, when you see one developer building out a whole precinct like this, that tends to result in a slower build-out as the developer's human and financial resources are spread thinner. Hopefully the proponent decides to sell one or a few of the parcels and we can see redevelopment here take place at a quicker pace.
