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.
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.
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.
Anyone know what this could be for? I'm not sure which units these are.
