    The more MJMA projects we get in this city, the better. Glad to see so many new athletics and community facilities as of late.

    Near where the boundaries of North York, York, and
    Bessarion Station will soon no longer be as much of a white elephant!

    I doubt a new community centre will make much of a difference.

    I'm assuming the land directly south of the proposed Community Centre is being held for the developer-proposed elementary school.

    Problem I'm hearing is elementary school may never come! The land was never conveyed to school board; school board is required to buy land and build at around $30 million cost. Land has high underground water level. Oh, and Province has school board finances in lock-down.

    Decision probably won't be made until Summer 2018.

    Are they planning on building noise walls along the 401? Otherwise the noise at the Park will be very loud.

    They should really put a road to Bessarion through there somewhere.

    You are going to hear traffic on the 401 one way or another and it's only a park that will see small numbers in the first place. A waste of money to put a wall up for a park. You have the choice to live there or not and no one is forcing anyone to buy because a wall is missing.

    Define "they",...

    Developer won't spend a penny more than they need to,....

    City is too cheap to install noise wall,... and generally don't anymore,...

    The "park" referred to isn't zoned as such since it's on hold for school board,.... either way it's not MTO policy to put noise wall at park nor school.

    A direct road connection from ParkPlace's 23(?) condo towers to Bessarion Road would overwhelm that existing neighourhood of existing single residential homes (to be protected). City policy is to protect existing single residential neighbourhood from new condo development whenever possible (ie: North York Centre's Service Roads of Beecroft & Doris around high density North York Centre Secondary Plan area).

    Closer to Bayview there's City EA on a new Service Road within that new high density condo area, between Kenaston Gardens & Rean Dr
    https://www1.toronto.ca/wps/portal/contentonly?vgnextoid=d8611db8846e6510VgnVCM10000071d60f89RCRD

    When (not if) the gap of single residential houses between Rean Dr and Bessarion Rd are replaced with high density, then you'll see a east west Service Road and this ParkPlace connected to Bessarion Road.
