    This centre is a great candidate for redevelopment... it can be so much more than what it is currently.

    I hope they try top the taller Hullmark tower with whatever goes in here. :D

    This centre definitely needs to be updated.

    Great thanks. I really hope this centre remains to the retail/commercial. would be a shame to turn into another condo project above the subway station

    The way i see it for 3 towers...one over the retail on Yonge, the other one replacing the shorter office complex, and the 3rd tower over the greenspace that i assume is privately owned by them.

    They just spent a few millions on updating the retail section.

    Never like this development for some reason.

    Why would they redevelop this over the plantiful two story low-rises that are directly adjecent or across the street from this site? Not to mention the parking lot that's on the Southwest corner and the row of gas stations further south on Yonge?

    Convinence is one thing but financial feasiability is also critical.

    I can't see them demolishing the taller building at 2 Sheppard E - it has 'decent' size and probably sits over the subway station which would add complexity. However, I can see 2 new towers going up just north of this building. This would be a shame because 2 Sheppard E is terrible at how it meets the street with all those stairs going up and down.

    I hope I'm wrong and a new and more street friendly tower goes into this important and improving interestion. This news along with the rumours/renderings of an OMERS office building on the SW corner has me very hopeful for my NYCC neighbourhood (where I both live and work).

    Because they own it, and they don't own those other properties.
