Four part Citizen series on Lansdowne issues includes the above Heritage article and opposition (to the amount of square footage) from the neighbourhood business improvement organization this weekend. Next weekend there will be stories on transportation and financing.
Speaking of transportation, the pedestrian and transit advisory committee will recommend the city halt the plan until transportation solutions can be found.
Sounds like the odds just shifted towards council wavering again, perhaps to building a new stadium and arena off-site but still allowing some development in the park to try and satisfy all parties (and pay for it all). If so, the city will have lost 3 years and will delay any completion of a new stadium and Lansdowne Park redevelopment by 3 to 5 years as well, that is if the developers/conditional franchise owners are will to participate in such a plan.
