Replace it with a Tim Hortons and it'll be instantly full with lineups.The one at Eglinton and Chaplin, which was "under renovation" for a while, is now dead.
That was another one of those really surprising ones in the middle of a pretty well-to-do neighbourhood. It was almost always completely empty except for the token sketchy character in the back. No idea how it survived.
I'd really like to see that waste of space plaza developed into something dense with retail and residential. It's so banal that I'm surprised to hear about the time capsule.Interestingly though, the plaza (looks like crap) actually has a time capsule buried under the covered walkway between Zellers & Loblaws, 1960-something I think, when the property was owned by Towers.
Yeah that location at Princess and Esplanade is still hanging in there. It is my dream to see it close and be replaced with... well, anything, frankly. I notice that the hours are much more reduced than they used to be, and now it closes quite early. Which is kind of a shame because the one useful purpose it had before was to shed some light on the corner late at night and make the area seem a bit less deserted on those rare occasions I was out in the wee hours.I think there's still one at Esplanade near Sherbourne but I haven't been down there in awhile. Also Dundas & Broadview.
