That 'new' plaza is about 7-8 years old, actually. And you're calling a Gas Station a decent development!?

This stretch (Main between Ottawa & Traffic Circle), imo, has the most potential as an Urban-friendly street once LRT comes along. But where it is now (a gas station, the disgustingly-tagged (by 8 y/o's apparently) Bird Insurance Bldg, a Groovy Baby Store, a Curves & CashMoneyNow Shop) is FAR from where it SHOULD be!

The shops that are decent are the ones that have been there for as long as I can remember (Rankin's, Main Cycle, that one Florist Shop with the nice decorative windows, Acceti's, etc).

Again, this stretch is another that has a great streetwall with stores facing the street & nice wide sidewalks... just too bad ScotiaBank abandoned it simply for a Drive-Thru.
