I agree. Still, great to finally see some densification on this plot. It's insane how it's quickly become surrounded by new development over the years.This is awesome! Can't wait to see this parking lot bite the dust!
It would be nice if the developer built a new Y in this development in exchange for re-developing the existing Y once it moved over.
I’d be willing to bet that we‘ll find them located in the base of a large condo development, but to have it running in five years, it would have to be the next one on the drawing boards for, maybe Oxford and Daniels, or possibly at M City, possibly opening the Y before the towers were completed. They’ll have a hard time affording any site there for single purpose use.According to a Reddit post, the site of the YMCA building has been sold as well. The Y is expected to vacate the site within 5 years, within that timeframe they will be seeking a new site. Email (in text) from the Mississauga YMCA:
Information regarding the initial listing of the YMCA parking lot:
I wonder if the plan is that "Phase 1" gets built on the parking lot with enough space for YMCA to move into, and then Phase 2 gets built on the current site.Through a mutually satisfactory agreement, Mississauga YMCA has negotiated a lease and will continue to operate at the property.
