This was tackled much earlier in the thread, but…

As ELAD doesn't own anything on the north side, and as they would have to provide access to the existing lots on the north side, why would they want to spend what it takes to create access to north side lots?
So then, why not buy those lots? Redeveloping them, now that there's a 30m separation distance required between rails and homes, would heavily restrict any gains from buying those narrow lots, possibly eliminating them all together. Besides, with the Galleria lot ELAD has, and keeping Dupont where it is, they have more land to create their own community within. Why would they split that up? They're putting in pedestrian-only shopping streets, trying to create a destination, and that requires a certain mass. Clipping off the north end of their lot would require them to split off most if not all of their commercial to the north side of Dupont (less separation required from rails - is it only 20m for commercial? can't recall exactly)… and end up with a major street bisecting what would be otherwise far easier to stroll.

There's basically no upside for ELAD that would cause them to push for a straightening of Dupont.

Thank you. The 30m separation distance is something I was not aware of so, yeah, definitely a downside there.

Metal framing for the outline shape of the presentation centre is pretty much set:

New NW entrance of the Galleria, as the west portion gets detached and demolished first:

They've painted and added lighting features along the Galleria signage tower:

I noticed there is an empty storefront on the west side of the mall now between the TD and Petvalu.

They finally moved the soil samples that were in the oil drums at the back of the parking lot to within the fencing so it stopped becoming a dumping ground for other waste.
