To me this latest development raises some important questions:

  1. What happens to the excess WH land the city already bought, and will the toxic Rheem site get remediated? (Perhaps this will be added to the cost of the velodome, but more likely it will remain a toxic nightmare since no private developer can afford to fix it.)

  2. Access to that parcel of land seems to be bottlenecked at Longwood/Aberdeen, how exactly does that make for a good "driveway-to-driveway" experience? Won't this bottleneck be a nightmare for drivers? (Unless we're going to spend more money upgrading roads and/or highway ramps.)

  3. Do we know if CP is even willing to sell the land? They don't have a lot of options to move their trains. With new GO Service out of Liuna Station the tracks in the north end are about to get real crowded.
