Thanks for posting this! I didn't know that this was going on. As a soon-to-be-new owner at Sheridan Station, I definitely would like to be there to see this.

Thanks again for posting this. I went- it was very well attended-everybody was there, except Barry (who sent a rep). I am finally beginning to get real picture of the scale of this development; it is huge! The whole face of Sheridan Road and that side of Stanton Road will be transformed by this development.
