‘Animated retail space’ proposed for revised Bayview west site

Brown at SevenAn “animated retail space” is how the Brown Group describes its ground-floor plans for the mixed-use development proposed for the west side of Bayview between Hillsdale and Soudan.

Brown’s revised plans for seven stories instead of nine were presented to a residents meeting last month at Hodgson school. Several residents said they were happy with the ground-floor retail to complement the stores on the other side of Bayview.

Adam Brown, a company spokesman, suggested that if the city does not give approval by the fall the Brown Group will appeal to the Ontario Municipal Board.
