SmartCentres in no rush to rebuild MacKenzie Pioneer Road
Alliston SmartCentres has been granted a five year extension on its
obligation to urbanize the section of MacKenzie Pioneer Road between
Cty Rd 10 and Dunham Drive.
The roughly paved southern access point into the Walmart anchored plaza
will remain an unassumed roadway until "future development conditions
require its completion."
SmartCentres is installing the watermain extension along MacKenzie
Pioneer to service the new Tim Hortons outlet that's expected to open
in the next month or two. The coffee shop will feature a two-lane
drive-thru window to curtail backed up vehicles affecting other
movement in the parking lot.
The plaza's expansion has proceeded slower than originally pitched
after the OMB approved it could develop approximately 400,000 sq
ft of commercial space. Walmart first opened in January 2010.
