A & W on the Keele St & Dundas St W. Corner.

Many people are disquieted aboud the coming of the A & W to the The Campbell Block.

The size of the outlet which appears to use two units of the building as reconstructed. A & W will have the super submarine frontage and the complete frontage along west side of Keele St. A section of the building that housed a 3 business previously n the same space.

The released plan does not show a drive in window, which if there is not one may result in many of the cars and trucks traveling north and south on Keele St. To just continue on.

A & W will hopefully provide the Dundas St. W. strip with some walking traffic which it needs.

    Dundas is lacking walking traffic?

    I do not like this at all. Such a great location given to another chain restaurant. Hopefully the rest of units will fetch some local independent business owners such as the Junction identity!

    Nothing wrong with A&W or some other chain businesses although I would have much preferred to see Quiznos instead of Subway! Independents abound in the Junction HOWEVER most cannot afford the lease cost of multi-million dollar restorations. Just a fact of life. Better than vacant storefronts. Plenty of those along Dundas!

    Raymond what does that have to do with anything? None of the storefronts in this building were vacant until they kicked everyone out

    What was there were a bunch of dumps (except Sub guy) and of no value to the area. A real eyesore for the most important intersection in the Junction. What is coming is a vast improvement that is costing millions of dollars.

    They MUST do something about the pigeons! They are a health hazard as well as filthy. Monday I was waiting for a northbound 89 bus and I could not believe the vast quantity of these filthy birds. Remember Legionnaires disease?

    Unfortunately, there is at least 2 people mass feeding the birds. First feeder usually comes around 830am, second comes around noon.

    First one comes with a buggy full of old bread. Its a sight.

    Swiss Chalet has leased in that same building you’re all talking about.
