Gas Bar Proposal Reactivated

Gas Bar Proposal Reactivated

On October 1, 2015, a development application for a gas bar, convenience store and drive through coffee shop at 2725 Old Montreal Road was reactivated after being on hold for several months. To recap, a Markham, Ontario based developer has applied to close a portion of Peter Harkness Lane from Regional Road 174 to Sparkle Street and to extend Barnett Drive approximately 130 metres to connect to Regional Road 174. The business would be located on the southwest corner of the 174 and the Barnett Drive extension.
