anybody know what remagined means?
I imagine they meant reimagined.
I would imagine that "reimagine" means something similar to what's been done in Vancouver at places like Metrotown and Brentwood mall.
It's packaging a large shopping mall along with a massive residential complex, with residences either above, or beside the actual shopping mall.
Seems folks (at least in Vancouver) love the concept ... albeit that in Vancouver the SkyTrain runs almost straight through the Brentwood developments residential living rooms.
^ I think the reality is that urban malls have been dying for the past decade. Many have tried to mix in office use to utilize the space with limited success so residential seems to be the logical next step.
The first midway of the year opens Thursday at Mayfair mall, with rides booked onto the site for the first time in the shopping centre’s 59-year history.
Spring Fair at Mayfair opens at 3 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot near the junction of Blanshard and Finlayson streets, and will include rides, games, and food.
Amusement park favourites such as the Sizzler, the Zipper and bumper cars are among the dozen rides and activities being offered through the four-day run.
The fair is open until 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and until 6 p.m. on Sunday. There is no admission fee to enter the site, but ride coupons are $1.25 apiece, with each ride requiring between three and six coupons.
