    Great to see this site might see a solid investment, very welcome news when compared to the carwash.
    I can’t wait to see the details for this project.
    Great to see the developer engage the community early.

    I was kinda looking forward to the car wash myself. I'm from Barrie and just bought a condo a few blocks north. OH well.

    I was so disappointed they pulled the old McBrides building down so quickly, there was a lot of character in it. I would have preferred to see it included as the ground floor of the build. I'm sure there will be local resistance to this development, complaints of it over shadowing their property as usually happens in this situation but I think that some residential while preserving the retail space is great, especially if the build isn't too high and it sounds reasonable.

    Are you kidding? There are many carwashes in the area. Part of the appeal of the area is the walkable, Victorian commercial area on Dundas. Car washes aren't appropriate at all for such a location and would only detract from it. Fortunately, it sounds like the owners came to their senses.

  6. Junction Resident says:

    I think perhaps that person was being sarcastic. Noone really wants to live next to a carwash
