Not that I don't think this is still the plan for underground routing, but this hasn't sold yet to a new potential developer, and I believe that is the process underway right now. I wouldn't rely too heavily on older drawings. A new site plan is possible as the old one is stale/unapproved from what I can see.
While the 2012 Final Report is from failed Centrium project,... new developer G-Group took over that project - just changed Hotel tower to Office tower with minor alterations - same built form, same density, same height, basically same everything - all the same Project Data, Development Fees, Section37 Community Benefits - just cosmetic changes & classification of commercial hotel to commercial office space; thus, they're using the original Final Report & approvals from Centrium! A few years ago, I've discussed this with the City Planner on this file.
The P1 Parking level plans I posted were from G-Group new Architectural Plans submitted December 6, 2017 - so that's P1 level isn't an "older drawing" - all the docs have been redone, just over a year ago!

Whether G-Group is still involved,.... Lalu Canada is involved in whole or partnership with G-Group,.... but the new single or joint entity seem to have just taken over the Project that G-Group done,..... IMHO, Lalu Canada is at best just a silent partner - maybe here to help with financing,.... but really here because G-Goup pissed-off the local councillor - and a 5220Yonge inc or whatever fronting a Lalu/G-Group partnership would be less offensive to the local councillor.
G-Group really just took over a pre-approved 2012 Centrium project - same height, density, project data points but had to do some minor adjustments,.... should have been fast and easy to get building permits years ago,... G-Group felt local councillor Filion & CityPlanning were taking too long so G-Group CEO contacted long-time friend Scarborough Councillor Michael Thompson (one of Mayor Tory's close right hand councillor) to help speed up the process,... "Toronto councillor chastised for ‘going to bat’ for developer"
Pissed-off local councillor Filion launched the Integrity Commissioner complaint against Councillor Michael Thompson for acting on behalf of G-Group's CEO Albert Gasparro (improper influence against councillor code of conduct)
Note: a few years ago, a new local ratepayers group was set up in the single residential neighbourhood directly west of Beecroft with the ongoing support & encouragement of local Councillor Filion - who tend to favour ratepayers groups & protect their neighbourhoods.
At the end of the day,... sometimes development within North York Centre is a Soap Opera - power, money, politics, favours, revenge,...
Anyways,.... Within the last 6 months the site (directly across of UrbanToronto offices) have been active with various prep work,....
As per PMT's recent January post: Building Permits for new building (& Demolition permits) were submitted recently - December 2018 - Note: Developer can't apply for New Building Permits unless their development proposal already have City Council Approval (that's from the original Centrium 2012 Final Reports),... so apparently, something being built here and it'll start construction very soon!
Core samples today.
From what I'm seeing,.... I'm not expecting a new site plan,.... I'm expecting ground breaking in a few months,... likely this Summer or Fall at latest!
And in about 5 years, I'll be using this underground P1 connection to get from Yonge-Shepppard Centre to here (every step completely underground),... and once I'm here, I'll be hanging out at the new NY Square mews between Ellie-Condo & Beacon enjoying my latte & people watching as I'll be in North York Centre's version of St.Lawrence Market!
