I often read the articles on Buffalo Rising. I have a soft spot for the Queen City even with all of it's faults. The people are really nice and it's nice to read their opinions of what goes on north of the border. Anyway they wrote about the MCC proposal. I think the comment section is the best though.

Mall Redevelopment: Toronto Style
by Buffalo RisingBuffalo Rising January 22, 2020, 1:24 pm

Reuse of dying malls is a timely topic, see Boulevard, Eastern Hills and most likely, McKinley Mall in this area. In suburban Toronto, a developer is revamping one of Canada’s most successful malls: Square One Shopping Centre in Mississauga, Canada’s sixth-largest city.

Oxford Properties and Alberta Investment Management Corporation are planning to transform 130 acres around the mall into an18 million square foot master planned mixed-use community, giving the booming suburb a ‘downtown.’ The planned Square One District is the largest mixed-use downtown development in Canadian history. What is today swaths of parking lots will be transformed into a vibrant community that will eventually comprise more than 18,000 residential units, a transit mobility hub connected to the Hurontario LRT, community buildings, parks, green spaces and office space. All of which will be anchored by Square One Shopping Centre, one of the best performing malls in Canada.
