Very random location. I know it's at the junction of two major roads (Montreal & Blair), but it looks like this area would not be well-served by rapid transit (I'm sure there are local buses but still a bit far from frequent service or LRT). What about commercial and grocery stores in the area? I assume this is not a 15-minute community.
There is frequent transit service- it's on route 12.

This is actually pretty close to Gloucester Centre/Blair station (less than 2km), but the north-south transit service along Blair is poor.

Those renderings of future massing along Montreal Rd just go to emphasize how much the land in the NRC campus is under-utilized.
