The Shops on Steeles will move head, thanks to a decision from the
Ontario Municipal Board
The project, which planner, architect and Kirkor principal Clifford Korman calls "urban intensification at its best," will sit on the border between Toronto and Markham. It was largely supported by Markham council and opposed by the city of Toronto.The mixed-use plan
, which originally called for 1,787 residential units, has been scaled back to 1,235. It is a redesign of the current Shops on Steeles, at the corner of Don Mills and Steeles, and will resemble the layout and effect of the Shops at Don Mills.
According to Korman, there will be both interior and exterior shopping, with all medical and dental services remaining indoors in a mall portion of the project.
The project will begin soon, and will take between 10 and 12 years to complete.
