One of the biggest changes to our neighbourhood over the next few years may be happening on Sterling Ave. Details about this can be found in this article in the Villager from February 21st.

Castlepoint Realty Partners, who purchased the property at 158 Sterling Ave. last year, is in negotiations with Pinewood Studios, billed as Europe's largest film studio. Its owners include world renowned filmmakers Sir Ridley Scott (Gladiator) and his brother Tony Scott (Top Gun).

"Castlepoint is in discussions with Pinewood Studios," confirmed Consultant Paul Pellegrini, "but nothing's been concluded."

Should the studio not become Castlepoint's main tenant, it will still continue with redevelopment and will seek businesses in the creative industry as tenants such as graphic arts, architecture, IT and recording studios, Pelligrini said.

Bloor/Dundas Visioning Session #2

The notice below arrived in my mailbox on February 27th. This visioning study is for an area just outside of our Residents Association, Bloor St. between Dundas W. and Keele, but its impact may affect most of us.

If you shop on Bloor St., use Dundas West subway station, use the Bloor GO station, or even just walk, cycle, or drive through the area, you may be interested in attending this session. Details below.
