Given the size of the anchor stores, the development requires high volumes of customers drawn from a very large catchment area, hence large number of drivers. In and out access to that area would be quite difficult, at least without making the link between Westdale and Kirkendall that much more pedestrian and bike unfriendly. Certainly not safer for the significant Westdale high pedestrian traffic. Also, large parking lots are completely out of keeping with Mac'splans to limit parking lot space on their parcel.

More to the point, where are the Hamilton tenors for "employment lands" now? A key piece of real estate is on the line, with a choice between Trinity (low # of jobs per acre, relatively low wage sector) and MIP (high # of jobs per acre, relatively high wage sector). Terry Cooke et al., we are waiting to hear from you.
