I have seen the future, and it is a strip mall.

  1. What makes this sign so sad is the lovely landscape with the farm in the background. What was that farm producing and where will the food from the shopping centre come from?

    Yeah and this area's farmland has already been overrun by housing developments. It's wayyy too crowded already (I used to live in "new" Bridlewood). I actually moved to Stittsville to avoid the eventual annoyance of all of this poorly planned development.

  3. Thanks Ross & Anonymous for the comments. Another thing: "Smart Centres" is the company behind this mall, but I'm betting that the development won't be very smart.

  4. I dislike this sign and their intentions. Do we really need yet ANOTHER mall in the Ottawa/Kanata area? For reals.

  5. Nice place it seems. This type of shopping destination I have seen in the army canteen. There a lot of products with a huge discount of around 50% makes the excitement double. Its just in a place like this.
