I'm always surprised that intensification occurs when a GTA municipality runs out of land, as ppl could always buy in a neighboring city.

Areas build up if there is more demand for that land than other land. Maybe Burlington is building up because people like the accessibility of the Queen E and rail lines over having to drive from rural areas to reach Toronto or Hamilton.

Strata








The Shore








IronStone








Oakville GO parking structure






Strata and The Shore have tenants living in them.

EDIT: A huge proposal to redevelop Bronte Village Mall has been brought forward.

If this project gets approved, it'll totally change the Bronte are.

Thanks for the updates! If that redevelopment occurs in Bronte Village, would it bring too much activity or something? What's the neighborhood like now?

Too much activity? I don't think so. Bronte is already a busy part of Oakville, especially in the summer.

Right now bronte village mall is pretty sorry looking and has been for awhile. I think folks in Oakville will welcome the redesign of the mall, but I'm not sure the home owners behind the property will like the proposed high rises.

Although Oakville seems to be more open minded to residential development, so maybe they'll be alright with the high rises.

Now Burlington on the other hand. If you so much as mention a 4-6 story development, folks will freak out.

I got to give props to the Oakville website. They make it so easy to find and read up on active development applications with the city. The layout of the site is so well done.

http://www.oakville.ca/business/acti...lications.html

Earlier I said the Bronte Village redevelopment could be the biggest project in Oakville. Well, I was wrong. The "Midtown Business and development" plan is probably the biggest. The city wants to redevelop the majority of the land surrounding the Oakville GO station with a lot of residential/ commercial mixed use buildings.

Is that why they built the parking structure? To develop the parking lots around the GO station?

Does anyone know?

http://www.westonconsulting.com/proj...tzsimmons.aspx

This was posted last year, It was approved by the OMB last year but I haven't seen anything about this on the oakville website so I'm wondering if its still going to happen. A project like this would sure make uptown core a big neighbourhood in Oakville, right now is just a bunch of open land, mid rise buildings, and a typical suburban comercial area

Can't wait to see some of these projects start to rise. These projects could result in a skyline for Oakville

Come on you guys, seriously?

Does anyone have any clue what the hell is going on with that uncompleted building just south of the QEW right off the Burloak exit? Doesn't even look like anyone is working on it any more. The construction site has been desolate all summer.

^I passed through there a while ago and there were trucks and builders but they don't seem to be working on the building often. I barely ever see them there.
