I think it will help the neighbourhood. Not as much as the City claims, but it'll definately help out. ANY development in this area is a welcome sight!
Like Flar said, I'm pretty sure some of the smaller indy places will find new homes in storefronts along Barton/Kenilworth. Much like Jumpoff
which is opening in an old bank or something at the S/E corner of Barton/Kenilworth.
Aslong as a Walmart doesn't open up, I don't think Ottawa St will be negatively effected. Actually, I think the relocation of the Centre Mall Farmer's Market to Ottawa street will be a blessing.
I also know ppl who have recently moved into this hood. However, they didn't move b/c the "new mall development", but rather b/c the houses are DIRT CHEAP! One couple I know even moved there from Toronto!? Strange spot for a Torontonian to move to!? hahaha
