I don't get out to Centre Mall very often, but whenever I do, it is clear that it is a gathering spot for many members of the community, particularly seniors. I'm no fan of malls, but the reality is that they are the 'main street' for many suburban communities, with all the social aspects that that entails. This development is 'main street' blown apart - all the negatives of a mall with none of the positives. No focal point, no shelter, and no gathering spot for those who made Centre Mall their second home. I feel terrible for the people who have lost their de facto community centre. Where will they go? Likely they'll stay home in isolation. This development sends a clear message: if you don't have a car and plenty of disposable income, you are no longer welcome.
