Anyone know what is happening for the art piece that was supposed to go at Bloor and Yonge north east corner. There was construction a few summers back and then it stopped and it's now paved over with asphalt instead of the granite pavers.

When they dug down, they found that the roof of the 2 Bloor East basement was in bad shape and that it would have to be fixed before a heavy art piece was installed. What has happened to correct the situation since? Nothing that we know of.

Stuart Weitzman is more of a mall store, they're suffering from the same brand problem as Coach - brand dilution from over expansion.

Bloor/Yorkville will be interesting in the coming years. You'll have massive flagship stores on Bloor as some of the mid-market retailers exit. You'll have more finely grained luxury retail within Yorkville itself as some of the spaces consolidate. It'll look very sharp I bet.

They're owned by the same people, anyway. I hope Stuart Weitzman isn't going to close too soon. I have two pairs of shoes I ordered at a trunk show a few months ago and it's not expected until March or even April (my feet are very small and it's difficult for me to buy shoes just by walking into a store)!

This brochure for 151 Bloor includes a map of retailers along Bloor, indicating the old Guess/Porsche space to be the "Future Sephora"

Yup -- same broker as Clarks (good guesses everyone). I was asked not to discuss Sephora's new location but Arlin's brochure had it in there, so it's out now. Watch for Sephora to make major moves in Toronto this year -- they're actually calling it the "Toronto Takeover". If anyone is interested, I have a list of locations and projected sales numbers (CF Toronto Eaton Centre's expanded location is projected to do $32mill in 2016 -- second-highest in N.America) and Sephora plans to do $150 mill in the GTA in 2017.

I'm actually interested in this, please do tell. Also, what kind of square footage are we looking at for the new Bloor location?

I think it's one of the stores in the covered walkway leading to Cumberland.

"Back to base build" just means that a tenant that is leaving has to renovate the space back to the regular building standards. So that the reno for the next tenant will be easier.

Guys!! What happened to tods, dior, brunello, Tom ford?? Did they stop looking because of the economy faltering or are they still actively seeking space? There's no talk of it at all.
