Brentwood Redevelopment Open House today

Unfortunately, I will be unable to check out the 2nd open house scheduled for tomorrow as I will be out of town.  Hopefully Shape Properties (BW Mall owner) will put some of it's presentation on its website as it did with the 1st open house.

Open house for Brentwood redevelopment June 27

The proposed redevelopment of Brentwood Town Centre will be the subject of an open house to be held Wednesday, June 27, 4 to 7 p.m. in the shopping mall's food court.
The public is invited to check out information on the proposed project and provide feedback.
Shape Properties, which owns the shopping centre at Lougheed Highway and Willingdon Avenue, plans to redevelop the property with housing, offices and public spaces, as well as a redesigned mall.
The company is proposing to rezone the property to set development guidelines for the 28-acre site. Redevelopment would happen in phases, with each phase requiring a separate rezoning.
The proposed plan would eventually see the site developed with six to 10 towers of varying heights, with the highest densities closest to Brentwood SkyTrain station. Low-rise housing would be built along the rear lane that separates the site from single and two-family homes in the neighbourhood. Parking would be moved underground.
