The other week I was looking across the sea of asphalt that is the new Centre on Barton toward the small stores, services, and banks that have their backs to Barton Street. I though to myself: those businesses could have anchored a renovated, restored, and in-filled Keniworth Ave stretching from Barton to Main. What I envisioned was a low rise streetwall, although I had not heard that term before. Kenilworth would have been revitalized the same as Locke, James, and Ottawa streets. The big box stores could have been pushed toward Barton. The remaining land along the rail line could have been developed for light industrial/commercial use: the type of business envisioned for the Aerotropolis. The industrial development would have easy road access to Burlington St via Ottawa St and a possible rail spur.
