Other features within the study area include high-rise and mid-rise residential buildings, established residential neighbourhoods, community facilities including Bathurst Clark Resource Library, a woodlot, Pierre Elliott Trudeau Park, the YRT bus terminal, a variety of retail uses and private and public schools.
Secondary Plan Study elements
A Secondary Plan Study will look at the following factors when considering redevelopment:
- the study area's role as a Primary Centre in the Vaughan Official Plan
- the mall’s location adjacent to a Primary Intensification Corridor with associated rapid transit
- the integration of planned and proposed transit infrastructure into the plan, including the current transit terminal
- the number of mixed-use buildings and amenities
- the appropriate building designs, public spaces and land use in relation to surrounding purposes, and integration and compatibility with the existing stable residential neighbourhoods
- the creation of a complete community suitable for a variety of needs
- the protection and enhancement of the open space areas and trails and their links to the residential and business community
