Rubble from the fire has been mainly cleaned up. Cobbs Bread is badly damaged and may need to be relocated. The Stadium Shopping Center development permit (DP) is scheduled for submission on Jan 28/16. The proposed underground parkade is reduced from 3 levels to two. The reduction is supported by proximity to significant transit routes and stall sharing (i.e. daytime uses, evening uses, peak demand etc. ).
