I've actually been doing some light research lately on these 'lifestyle centres'. Centre Mall in Hamilton is planned to be redeveloped and word is it will be big box. I would much rather see a lifestyle type of project that integrates the project into the streetscape of Barton and Ottawa instead of adding horrendous traffic and more pedestrian/vehicle collisions in an area with many pedestrians and cyclists. Meadowlands may work in Ancaster, but won't in the central city where folks can get around by walking, biking or transit. Some lifestyle centres seem kind of corny and Las Vegas-like, but for the most part I like the idea. Much more enjoyable than big box.
