All still looking...

There'll be some openings now that Chanel is moving and HMV is closing up shop. Of course, the HMV location probably isn't the best for a luxury brand.

A friend of mine architected it. She now lives in London and is Selfridge's in-house chief architect. I wonder how long before the Selfridge folks make a move on their other store at 50 Bloor West? They are certainly dragging their feet on it…

The pop-up shops for the Andy Worhol show and Clarke's Shoes now have construction hoarding and unfortunately they took down two or three of the newly replaced trees to accommodate the supports for the hoarding. Those trees just keep getting abused, first by severe weather than construction. Whatever goes there better be worth those trees' demise.

Any news on Eataly? What's the chance of the store opening in Yorkville/Bloor versus other locations, such as in the new Loblaw building at Bathurst and Lake Shore?

edit: As for Yorkville, are there any retail space that can accommodate Eataly by 2017 other than Holt Renfrew and potentially the Manulife Centre location?

Easy to miss, but there is an Eataly thread, resurrected today due to the news confirming that one will open in Toronto.

I doubt Bathurst and Lake Shore is in the running.

Any truth to the rumor that Saint Laurent is opening in the Cumberland side of 150 Bloor West?

*Edited: Saint Laurent will open in Toronto this year, but not in that space. Details to be released in June or earlier.

It's still only speculation until confirmed, but multiple sources are saying that it's going on the second level of Manulife Centre. A restaurant in the same complex recently exercised a restrictive covenant, causing a delay. That restaurant may have since been paid out, paving the way for a 39,000 sq ft 2nd floor Eataly with a primary entrance on Bloor Street (former Jacob space), with retail space on the ground floor and concourse level of Manulife, as well.
