Gee, that just across the street and a couple feet east of the Four Seasons hotel (future Yorkville residence tower)...i cant see a big fight when just south, the city has approved the 2nd phase of Yorkdale Plaza, (39 storey)Looks like it's the small commercial building next to the Hazelton. It's actually an interesting building with the split staircase and all, only ruined by the fact that one of those staircases leads to a Subway restaurant (using the term rather loosely). Something tells me this won't go up without a big fight.
Ok, you don't like malls, but you do realize Yorkdale has something like the highest sales per square foot of any mall in North America.
But they carry a lower end merchandise of all those brands. They're not the same.truthfully id rather shop outdoors as well but the mall can be convienent in the winter. BTW YRKDALE is getting a Cartier store.
seems pretty high end to me.
now if only it could get a lucky lanes bowling alley and a dave and busters it would be the perfect winter getaway.
To each their own - the poor form of how 136 and 140 meets the street is a turn off for me - but actually York Square, which includes the "disposable" InDiva, was one of the original retail developments that started to turn Yorkville into a retail destination140 Yorkville Avenue and its neighbour to the east at 136 Yorkville are distinctive and interesting buildings. Here's what they look like on Google street view. 140 Yorkville is a streamlined late modern building that evokes that "ultramodern" aesthetic, while its larger neighbour at 136 Yorkville with the Subway restaurant is bolder and verges on Postmodernism with angular windows that look like oriels, a monumental central pier, good terracing, and prominent mouldings around the windows. We shouldn't be losing such attractive and sophisticated buildings. It would be best to incorporate the buildings as a whole into a new development. The tacky Indiva store at 144 Yorkville, on the other hand, looks much simpler and more expendable.
