One of the enduring mysteries of Weston is why the Crossroads Plaza is so empty. We may have an answer. According to Matt Elliott’s newsletter, SmartCentres REIT has been lobbying “for rezoning to permit residential and other uses” at many of their properties, including the one in Weston.
However, any development may be some ways off. Elliott says “some of the [company’s] properties have public development plans, while others still seem to be in the very early stages”. I, for one, haven’t seen any plans for the plaza.
The city database says that Frances Nunziata’s office has had four communications about the plaza with the VP of Corporate Affairs, Julie O’Driscoll.
