This plaza has a presentation centre for Chartwell Retirement Residences. Could this be it?

From the Planning Rationale Report:

Parking ratio is quite high:

0.85 spaces per unit.

First Floor Plan :

Comparatively little retail, with amenity space fronting Kingston Road. Can't say I like that.

Surface parking for visitors at rear isn't ideal, though relatively well hidden.

****

Landscape Plan: Lots of trees, choices are fine.

But.....I have an issue w/the pedestrian realm, and tree placement along same.

This plan shows no trees to buffer pedestrians from traffic, instead, placing them between the sidewalk and the building.

Fundamentally this creates a poorer pedestrian experience.
