I agree.... I live close to the area too and the only thing that would justify it is if the entire block from the coffee time to the mc donalds went midrise and the whole area was changed.... At the same time I think there are a plenty of other reasons for Oakwood to be built and im crossing my fingers that my midrise dream comes to life.
The Hub has been put on hold for the moment. They just weren't getting the sales they needed to move forward with it currently… despite offering larger rooms than one can find in downtown condos these days, for less money. It seems the Crosstown LRT is still too abstract an idea for many.
