The city has updated the Toronto PATH map. Unveiled this morning.

'Colour system is gone, main corridors distinguished from rambling inlets, more connection with the world above'

East of this, west of that
Thanks for the update, @devjohnson. I like the new map. Although for a map that's trying to be more connected to the "world above", odd that they don't note Ryerson in the top corner. They have Roy Thomson, what about notations for Royal Alex, Elgin, Massey Hall and Mirvish (given that those are presumably destinations of a lot of people not already familiar with the PATH). I like the "5 minute walk" radius (should be "5-minute walk", but I digress), just not too sure how accurate it is.

The Market by Longo's reopened today in Brookfield Place after being closed ~2 months as they completed an expansion. Many more grab & go options but salad bar in back corner appears to have less options with a compact set up that allows for fewer customers to access than previously. Branding/style seems consistent with St. Clair location.

"Now arriving at Osgoode. The next station is: Osgoode"
That 5 minute walk ring seems way off, especially if you are actually in the PATH and walking through it, as implied by that map. Perhaps, if you were on the surface, and you could walk unobstructed in any direction, it would work, but the built form of the city and PATH is not at all like that. At a brisk walking pace, with no other pedestrians bumbling around in your way (good luck with that on a weekday in the PATH), you are not getting from there to Union subway station in 5 minutes, by any route. Even on the surface it's a challenge with clogged sidewalks and waits at traffic lights.

What they really ought to do is have better signage for rough directions. I have used it quite a bit and I still sometimes get lost. A newbie or tourist would feel the pain

Of course there is lots of traffic, but I am not sure enough people shop for the stores to make money

Out of curiosity, anyone know roughly what rent is going for?

Noodles and Co. closed their only Canadian (?) location in TD Centre February 28. They left behind bottles of soda in the (then) refrigerated case and piles of plates in the seating area. They were doing gangbusters when they first opened, and then McEwan opened.

Maybe a Chipotle will open here?

Porchetta & Co is opening a location in FCP across from the Robo McDonalds. It's in a recently subdivided space where the old Japanese restaurant used to be. The other unit next door will be another raw juice place from the looks of it.
