^It runs through Arcadia (requisite non-place-specific generic name of Minto's new development in Kanata near Scotiabank Place).

Nowhere, in other words?

Yeah, I'm not likely to ever set foot anywhere near the place, thereby disproving the assertion that "everyone in the city" will shop there! :]

It's more likely to have people travel from across town (and surrounding areas) than other retail. Someone from Orleans wouldn't travel to the Western edge of Kanata to go to a Walmart or Home Depot, but are more likely to for the Tanger outlet, which will probably see brands not found anywhere else in the area.

I'm trying to decide if you really don't know where Huntmar is, or you're obliquely pointing out that it is Huntmar Drive and not Huntmar Road.

Huntmar is between the Corel Center (Scotiabank Place) and the Palladium auto park. Outlet mall will be North directly over the Queensway on the West side.

Could be Huntmar Crescent, Huntmar Acres, or Huntmar Mews for all I know. Aucune idée.

Huntmar is on the boundary between the old townships of Huntley and March. Thus, the mash-up name. Makes me wonder why this principle wasn't applied elsewhere in the region. Why, for instance is there no Gloucumberland St. (instead of Champlain)? Seems very short-sighted. Or the very catchy sounding Goulata Drive? Nepideau, Glousgoode, Vancliffe Park?

Toronto developers caught on quite early to the stitch-together-your-own-monster game and began doing this with anything built at an intersection of two major streets. St. Clair + Brimley = Brimclair. I'm surprised none of the developers in Barrhaven used Jockstrand; who wouldn't want to live/shop there? Or Pink Mountain, Aylmer. St. Paiement, Gatineau? Or the very band-name sounding Trim 174 in Orleans? Je plaisante.

"Rich Island," new luxury condos in Westboro? For real street names there is also Russland Road, which is between Russell and Cumberland

The mid-rise office building on the NW corner of Elgin and Lisgar used to be cutely-named "The Elgar", now I guess its all grown up, so it just goes the street address.

Another fine example of imagination is the Trebla Building on Albert Street. Trebla is Albert spellled backwards...

I believe it is on hold right now. I'd deny the applications for several reasons:

1) Location is HORRIBLE. There is no transit service near the site, and it is on an open stretch of Hunt Club that is poorly connected to other streets.

2) The zoning is not ideal; it should be industrial and not commercial there.

3) Traffic safety is a major issue there and it is already near or over capacity. Pedestrian access is virtually impossible as no residential areas are nearby and Hunt Club is not (and should not become) a pedestrian-oriented corridor at all.

I'm pretty sure it's under construction and should be ready for fall occupancy

Edit - just a reminder for those who are unsure about this project: http://www.springcress.com/pdf/460_whc_brochure.pdf & the OBJ article: http://www.obj.ca/FlyingPage/3509/Ma...nt-Club-Centre
