Taken on Friday:
And the weekend:
Anyone know which retailers or grocers/food court tenants that will occupy the building?
According to this, only a food court and Pure Fitness are confirmed as tenants. I'm sure there are others in negotiation.
I could have sworn someone mentioned something about a Shoppers Drug Mart in the ground-level retail unit but I completely forget. It's unfortunate there is only one retail unit for the entire ground level of this huge site.
apparently the second floor large format space is taken, just no tenant announced. It's the third floor space that needs a tenant, and is extremely large at 75,000 square feet. You need a big box tenant for that like Walmart.
Wasn't it supposed to be Target before they blew up?
Hope it's something more interesting than a Walmart or a Canadian Tire.
Time for Toronto to get its second west elm store. 75,000 square feet is obviously far too big for them but hopefully somewhere else in the Sun Life development or nearby in the South Core.
I love how nice this building is. Seriously. It just fits the skyline so well.
I wish IKEA moved in there. Trekking up to no man's land every time I want some liggonberry jam and Finnish pancakes is getting tiresome.
They're moving really quick with the demolition of the offramp.
It's just one off ramp, but it does make you wonder how the city would change, and mature, if the whole damn thing came down. #igerstoronto #gardinerexpressway #infrastructure by JasonParis, on Flickr
I imagine a Canadian Tire would do good business there, aside from the automotive side. Actually, it's not so much Canadian Tire as such, but the general hardware side of things that would be helpful. A good Home Hardware store would be even better.
Not a Rob Ford voter?
I like the photo of the ramp demolition. I'm sure visitors to the city think "they're crazy, they've started taking down the concrete supports before all the steel beams are off"
That's how it should be done.
