Overview

By the time we conceived of Marine and Byrne, we began placing a greater emphasis on architectural integrity, which in this form of development is a bit of a stretch. How do I justify having built this and a number of other shopping centres in the context of our anti-sprawl, anti-auto philosophy? In this case, the property was originally a landfill and an industrial building with a large industrial and office precinct immediately behind it. Hopefully, the shopping centre has reduced auto use by providing services in close proximity to nearby consumers. It is arguably one of the most attractive neighbourhood shopping centres in the province.
