Stockyards retail development landscape images.

The huge and highly anticipated retail mall at the north west corner of St Clair Ave and Keele St. has had building permits issued.

But right now the most viable and rather striking feature of the conversation of the last major lot in the old stockyards area are the large landscape views afforded.

These image were taken access the new TTC loop on St Clair Ave. at Gunns Rd. Also pictured below showing addition landscape work being performed.

By Viewing the Site Plan you can match up the permits issued with the Builder structure letter assigned eg. A or C or F etc..
So the South End of the complex gets developed first (along St.Clair) and then the North End ( along Gunns Road)

These permits submitted so far are all for the south end of the Mall Complex.

There is a meeting tomorrow April 16, 2012 for Ward 17 regarding widening the road at St.Clair and Keele between Old Weston Rd and Keele right under the bridge. I encourage all to go out and show your support to get the road widened to two lanes each including the widening the bridge. This also impacts Ward 11 so the more people in favour of widening the road the better chances it will be implemented.

Road Modifications – St. Clair & Old Weston Road

PUBLIC MEETING

I have scheduled a public meeting on Monday, April 16, 2012 – 7:00 PM at the Joseph J. Piccininni Centre, 1369 St. Clair Avenue West, just west of Lansdowne Avenue. The purpose of this meeting is to get your input on proposed modifications that are both necessary and urgent. TTC/City Staff will be on hand to provide us with information and options on what improvements can me made; please make every effort to attend.

Traffic movement on St. Clair Avenue West, between Keele Street and Old Weston Road has become dangerous and a total nightmare. Residents and the business community have expressed their deep concern over this stretch of roadway, as congestion and gridlock create unreasonable travel times.

This intersection is not safe and immediate changes are needed to make it safer for TTC users, motorists and pedestrians. To realize this goal, I have moved recommendations at the Etobicoke York Community Council and at the TTC, asking the Commission to report back as soon as possible on the feasibility of implementing these changes.
