There is a little downtown on Markham rd and HWY 7 but it's just a strip. This new area would have retail, restaurants, entertainment etc. so I guess people would still consider it downtown.
Edit - personally I'm happy this is going on, I drive by the construction site semi-regularly and it looks like it'll be pretty cool. Since I moved up here it'll be nice to have a closer "downtown" to hit up.
