This has to be one of the most dramatic renovations of any GTA mall - not a gradual change like Square One, Sherway or Yorkdale. But then, they left it without any changes for so long.

Maybe the old skylights were leaking and a flat roof would stand up better?

Or maybe they just wanted to look more like Yorkdale, with the 60s era clerestory windows.

Seems very ordinary/sterile retro though

What do they have planned for the columns?

*****

At Guildford Town Centre in Surrey, BC, they did a great job redoing the columns
- putting lighted tops on them and a bright red ribbon sculpture down the middle of the mall
(a simple enough piece to liven it up)

Unfortunately the spaceframe just screams late 70s/early 80s, in a Crystal Cathedral/Biosphere 2/Jarvits Centre sort of way.

I'm not sure how I feel about them covering up all the windows on the ceiling/roof/skylight. Why the need for a ceiling? Everyone else is moving toward MORE glass.
I think I know why they did that. To help brighten the lower level areas. They used to get so dark and dreary before.. These new lights should help brighten up the space quite a lot.

I think it's looking good so far, but I'd just like to see some more color.. Looks very minimalist so far.
