those cheque cashing, kitschy tourist shops, body piercing, and phone repair places will be sorely missed.

Condo retail isn't always terrible, look at 5ive. Bar Volo, Wickson Social, Aroma Cafe, and RBC. RBC is the only one that I would argue is "bad" retail.
Don't get it it? how can banks be bad retail business when they are so busy..is it a UT thing cause it sure is not for normal people?

Banks usually sign as anchor tenants fairly early in the process. I wish condos had more foresight and designed underground or 2nd floor commercial spaces for banks, shoppers drug marts, and so on, to keep ground level retail more vibrant.

You ever been in front of a bank at 8PM? Banks have limited hours and are basically dead zones 2/3's of the day and on weekends.

Is it me, or is this project coming together quite nicely? The materials and glazing look higher quality than I expected, and there seems to be a lot going on on the lower levels. I'm hopeful this will look good.
