I'm not sure if the entire site has been purchased for construction purposes by Metrolinx, with the unneeded areas to be sold off later, but yes they require the area lining the current tracks for the new tracks and station. Certainly there will be planning for a mixed-use redevelopment on the site at some point.I assume the No Frills and Plaza is toast?
Are Platform Screen Doors confirmed for this line or will they also be eventually removed?
good thing you aren't losing Jimmy Simpson then!Oof, losing No Frills and the park is going to be a PITA for my mom. I hate to be a NIMBY, but losing both the Gerrad park and Jimmy Simpsons is not great for the neighbourhoods.
The NIMBYs want you to think that but all Metrolinx is doing is cutting down a couple of trees along the rail corridor. They will actually be adding a small amount of park area to Jimmy Simpson:
