Jarvis and Dundas

Some more retail shuffling is happening in the neighbourhood:
  • Just in case it wasn't clear that Dundas & Jarvis is on the up-and-up, gourmet butcher 'Butcher Boutique' is moving into 75 Mutual (formerly Purple Haze cannabis). The building has been re-painted black and a new mural has gone up. I'm excited!
  • The Anarchist coffee shop, in the former POP Coffee spot, is closing at the end of the month.
  • Avenue Cafe + Bistro is opening up in the seemingly unlucky corner spot in PACE condos. Their signage has been up for months, but it looks like some new furniture etc. has been delivered recently.

I look forward to your report once these new establishments have opened!
 
The area is will get about 1000 new units of housing in September so I think that bodes well for business.

Anarchist not making enough profit, it seems!

And dilutes the insane, addicted and homeless demographic into a larger pool of sane, sober and housed people. I’m not for displacement, but dilution? Absolutely.
 
The Anarchist is not shutting down at the end of May and will continue operating afterall, at least in the near term. 🤷‍♂️

That's great news; it functions as a great neighbourhood coffee shop. It would be nice if the full space was available for use again though, as it can get really crowded in there. (The owners of the unit walled off half of the original coffee shop during the pandemic as a room to rent to estheticians).
 
Just a few pix from along Gerrard East around Jarvis. New café on the north side west of Jarvis and one of the Anishnawbe buildings has sold. There seem to be fewer tents in the park.

And as I am a weak person I bought a custard pastry at ConcilLab at Gerrard and Berkeley. 😔

I looked up info on 179 Gerrard East (Anishnawbe Health) and saw that it was marketed as a development site. Though the facade is beautiful and protected the interior has been heavily renovated and could be torn down with no one shedding a tear. There are many interesting projects that use the back part of a lot to put up a building to pay for a detailed renovation of a heritage structure such as Casey House and the condos near Sherbourne and Bloor.

How does one find out who bought it?
