    Grayfield redevelopment - multi-use Arlington Market

    The following is a quality grayfeild redevelopment which just recently received approval for the redevelopment of a derelict shopping center into a mixed retail and residential development - Arlington Market

    Here are some pictures of the property currently:













    From the developer's website:

    The Elliott Group, Inc. has proposed a re-development of Arlington Market that will include 110 condominium units, 54 townhomes and about 40,000 square feet of retail space.

    Overall site plan

    1st building of retail portion

    2nd building of retail portion

    5 story condo buildings

    Detached townhomes

    This development is going to be good for this section of the municipality (though there are no problems now), and will be a showcase example of grayfeild redevelopment.
    I'm sorry. Is my bias showing?

    Let's not be didactic in this profession, because that is a path to disillusion and irrelevancy.

    Six seasons and a movie!

    Cool, an example of a greyfield turning into a "goldfield"

    I hope it turns out well. It sounds like the wrong thing for me to say, but I don't know if I'd want to live in an old mall, even if it's been totally altered into something new.

    I guess we'll have to find a use for a lot of these derelict shopping centres sometime. There are few eyesores like an abandoned/semi-abandoned strip mall.

    I do wonder what level of interest it will generate though.
