That's extremely disappointing. Although... David's and Capezio were 6,000 square feet combined. Right now there is 1,100 square feet remaining. So this would imply someone leased 4,900 square feet. That feels big for a Hakim, which is usually around 2200 square feet. Wishful thinking but perhaps David's was split into 2? Hakim, moving into a bay street address and something else on Bloor. (Just a thought).Hate to break it but...I think this is becoming a Hakim Optical...

Hmm, I missed this post somehow.
I agree that it is a lost opportunity and could be so much better. No green landscaping is very sad.Hmm, I missed this post somehow.
As to the renders..........better than it is now..........that's not much to brag about.
I don't think the open space around the entrance makes much sense as envisioned.
No green, very sterile.
If you wanted to keep space here, there should at least be a patio, if not two.
Each of which would 'green' the space seasonally.
The austereness of it is unpleasant.
In fact, there are planters currently that aren't in the rendering, so they're *losing* greenery.I agree that it is a lost opportunity and could be so much better. No green landscaping is very sad.
Didnt they just re-model this location?RI notes that the gap is closing their flagship at Bloor and Bay. Lotta retail space there. If I were Holt Renfrew I'd move my Men's Store there (which, if the lobby access to the office build was reconfigured to a bay street access point vs bloor street) could also have a direct connection to the main store and would have the corner windows...
