    Jasonzed - Jason Zytynsky - Dedication at Mississauga City Hall

    Very sad news. I always enjoyed his contributions to this site. A very talented person. Sincere condolences to his family and friends.

    Churchill Meadows Community Centre (City of Mississauga, 1s, MJMA)

    I'm bothered by the name of this CC/park. There's already an existing Churchill Meadows Community Common Park, and a Churchill Meadows Library (which probably should've been moved to this new facility). Does no one think it will be confusing opening a Churchill Meadows Park and Churchill Meadows...

    While not directly in the MCC, there is plans for a "Cooksville" community centre in the Hurontario/Dundas area. It will likely be part of a redevelopment of the TL Kennedy site. Aside from that, I doubt we will see another community centre built in the area any time soon, as that area is well...

    Someone earlier suggested this is geothermal (all of the black flexible piping). Any more info on this? Doesn't make sense to me seeing as there's still a huge amount of excavation to take place in this area. Really curious about this.

    This is phenomenal news for the downtown core (regardless of whether Roche is moving here or not). Hopefully this is the first of many office towers.

    Substantial performance expected December 2020. Park construction expected to begin Spring 2021.

    Toronto | Exchange District Condos | 232m | 72s | Camrost-Felcorp | IBI Group

    Correct. The site restoration work is entirely unrelated to the Exchange District project. The Region of Peel's Burnhamthorpe Water Project is slowly wrapping up, and contractors are required to restore the site to original condition (asphalt paving, sidewalk, curb & gutter, sod replacement).

    That was a photo of the future Elm Drive Public School

    You're saying 201 will be demolished as well? I was under the impression the City had just extended (or was in the process of extending) their lease.

    Can anyone comment on the drilling work going on in the last photo? What are the black, blue and red containers? You cant see in these photos but there's several black pipes sticking out of the ground in the locations they've drilled (probably the black pipe in the rolls along the fence)...

    A few months ago the YMCA parking lot was listed for sale by CBRE on behalf of YMCA, unsure if it sold. I remember seeing a photo which showed a future public road where the current parking lot driveway access is. Property to be severed at time of sale, existing YMCA building site is not part of...

    Toronto | Square One District | ?m | 65s | Oxford Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    Except the majority of the mall has seen significant improvements to both the finishes and the mechanical aspects, to a much greater extent than Walmart. In fact most "big box" stores are built with the intentions of lasting only 20-30 years. I realize this particular Walmart may be a different...

    Toronto | Square One District | ?m | 65s | Oxford Properties | Hariri Pontarini

    This alone would be a major improvement to the area and significantly improve the pedestrian and vehicular flow of the area. Considering the age of the current Walmart building, it is likely well past its projected useful lifespan despite the recent interior renovations. Walmart also seems to...

    I work in this area, there are workers on site nearly every day, but work has progressed extremely slowly.

    I know there were some rumors a while back about a Cheesecake Factory location opening up at Square One, and some news sources speculated that they may take over the old Empire Theater. There's been a few building permits pulled for Unit 2-450 (previously Empire Theater, currently listed as...

    Toronto | Square One Expansions and Revitalization | ?m | ?s | Oxford Properties | MMC Architecture

    A rumor I heard quite a while back was the City wanted to hold out on moving the CCTT until Square One has another use for the land it is on, to assist them in negotiating the purchase or lease of other land from Square One. The ideal situation would be Square One decides to develop the site of...

    (Somewhat unrelated, but considering the transit terminal is on Oxford property....) There is currently a tender out for construction management services for a $5 million interior renovation to the City Centre Transit Terminal. There had been some talk about it potentially being relocated in the...

    Over the past few years I've heard of at least 3 or 4 different plans for the theater, and all of them have flopped. I agree, that entire part of the mall was awkward and poorly designed from the beginning.

    Toronto | Square One Expansions and Revitalization | ?m | ?s | Oxford Properties | MMC Architecture

    Been trying to find out some info on the work going on at Entrance 4. Not sure if anyone has noticed but there has been some heavy demolition work going on inside the movie theater. They have cut out a section of the wall on the west side of the theater for access in/out for heavy equipment...
