Not sure how to interpret this- but it seems as though all of the retail at the condos at 80 and 100 Yorkville- Teatro Verde, Diesel, and Anthropologie- will be moving to Yorkville Village? Thereby further freeing up significant space for other, more high-end retailers. https://www.firstcapitalrealty.ca/PropertyDetails.aspx?id=219

Of these, however, only Teatro Verde is located on Yorkville Village's leasing plan http://yorkvillevillage.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/04/leasing-plans.pdf

First Capital owns the retail component of the buildings that Diesel are in. They consider the whole area "Yorkville Village" . The address on your link includes the buildings that are actually on Yorkville. What this is a good example of is how a singular landlord can more successfully redevelop a neighbourhood and focus on attracting the right tenant mix.

Ah okay, this makes sense then. Thanks for clearing that up!

It's a Clarks pop-up. That retail space and the neighbouring Guess space will be rebuilt to become one large two-level flagship store for an international retailer. We've been asked not to reveal the brand yet but here's a hint -- the brokerage representing Clarks also represents the incoming flagship brand.

That's a great hint - it's going to be a Uniqlo store.

"Sources say Nordstrom Rack is close to a deal that would bring the chain to the intersection’s southeast corner. Across the street on the southwest corner, Apple Inc., after years of searching for street-front space on the city’s famed Mink Mile strip of retail on Bloor Street west of Yonge, is also near a deal.
But an even bigger transaction by dollar value on the north side will see Cumberland Terrace and Two Bloor West purchased by one of the largest and most respected private real estate entities, KingSett Capital. (Sources say the deal is under contract, but has not closed)."

I was just at the Nordstrom Rack Union Square in NYC last week. They carry a fantastic selection of discounted designer clothing. You can find some really amazing deals there.

Has the old Jacobs location in the Manulife Centre been leased? Went by there today and it looked some renos were going on (at least in the lower level portion).

Came across First Gulf's commercial space leasing brochure, it has 2 renderings I haven't seen before (p1 / p7).

It also shows floor plans of P2/P1/L1/L2 and how it will function, to those that are interested in the details like myself:

http://www.firstgulf.com/pdf-property/OneBloor_EmailVersion_LR.pdf

So the Nordstrom Rack space would be the entire 2nd floor
(with a carve-out at the Bloor-Yonge corner which would belong to the ground floor tenant)?

That would make more sense than Nordstrom Rack dividing its space over 3 floors (P1, ground and 2), based on its usual store layouts.

More high end changes coming to Bloor and Yorkville itself.

Seems like labels no longer care about being on Bloor and as such, a new generation of musical chairs is about to play out in the Yorkville area. Expect numerous new announcements soon (in addition to Chanel)

To note: gossip is Gucci will take the vacated Hermes to build a 10k+ sqf flagship. When you count the old Chanel, etc there's a lot of good space opening up.

Hermes is moving to 100 Bloor West. If they're taking 8,000 square feet (per the source) than they are in the space next to Holt Renfrew man on these leasing docs: http://www.100bloorwestretail.com/

www.fashionmagazine.com/fashion/2015/11/20/saks-2016/

We've got an update from Hermes. The Bloor flagship will be close to 12,000 square feet, making it one of North America's largest, and one of only 12 Hermes 'Maisons' worldwide.

*Update (Nov 26) Hermes confirms that it's taking the Williams Sonoma portion of 100 Bloor St. W., nothing on the Pottery Barn side.

I keep on hearing that Sephora is moving/expanding/renovating. Not sure there is space for them in the Colonnade or if they will migrate further East to perhaps the Manulife Centre?
