Agreed - Nice shot!
At some point Toronto will have to diverge from naming its subway lines based on corresponding roadway allignments - they won't all follow roadways, as the western leg of the YUS (and its extension...
Looks more like this much shorter Vancouver project:
This is why you want a driverless automated system (whether an exclusive RoW LRT, generic mini-metro or SkyTrain) - although there are high capital costs, there are low operating costs.
The White Spot restauarnt over which the guideway is being built is apparently closed until March 31st for the construction.
Thanks, somehow missed that.
I wonder if that'll be in addition to menswear space in the main Bloor St. store, or replacing it?
17,000 sq ft doesn't sound like a lot of space.
i.e. Hudson's Bay menswear floor in...
and interestingly - it says Holt Renfrew will be opening a men's store at 100 Bloor St West.

If you know anyone who owns a store - check out the fixtures!
When the Vancouver store closed, cool stuff like glass shelves for $5.00, table tops, etc. could be purchased.
The only benefit I can see with Saks being in the CBD (Bay St. side of the site) is being close to those who have money to spend (but who probably don't have a lot of time to shop). I can't see them...

Great pic, thanks for posting!
Nordstrom is less of a true department store than Sears. Nordstrom just has clothes, shoes, jewellery and cosmetics.
No furniture (apparently some stores may have some), hardware, sporting goods,...
That addition is quite elegant and screams "high end".
The old Robert Simpson Co. logo even has a similar script to Saks Fifth Avenue.
With separate entrances, that suggests, as others have...
Posted yesterday by Yellow Fever at SSC:
I can also see it being only 150,000 sq ft to keep it very exclusive and minimize overlap with the Hudson's Bay offerings next door in The Room, etc.
Sounds like they are taking a conservative approach and hopefully the co-location will allow them to expend the Saks over time.
I agree a vertical store (side-by-side stores) would be best. Saks...
Came across these great old pics of Yorkdale, including the old Simpson's Court and Eaton's entrance with the flower canopies and restaurant above:
Another small pic - upper right pic:
No operable windows? or is that an office floor?
You can see the temporary support tower and cables that will hold up the old arch span during dismantling:
