I realized the other day when driving on Bathurst that this development is going to REALLY change the view from the bridge over the train tracks, which is a popular location for photos. A large part of the downtown skyline will be blocked and replaced with these buildings. I hope it's worth the trade!

Anyone know how the retail leasing is going on this one ? That's always one thing that had my concerned, I think the offices / condos / rentals will do great no problem (and some have already done so)

Honestly, I wouldn't worry about that much. If I were to do a marketability study on this, I would look to current population within the close vicinity, and projected population in the future. In both cases, there is a sizable market. Income demographics are very high as well. Yorkdale as a regional mall pulls in many people from all over. While this won't be a super regional like Yorkdale, it will be a sizeable retail location on the west side of downtown, with lots of residents already built in, a GO station adjacent (still planned right?) and something of a tourist hotspot given the outdoor market atrium design. It will also pull in people from Toronto, but also from other cities like Yorkdale I think.

On the latest Riocan investor's call I believe they mentioned that they are initiating substantial leasing efforts this year. They were waiting until they had most of the office space secure so they could give potential retailers a better sense of what the immediate demographic mix of the area (and The Well) specifically would be.

RioCan isn't leasing the office space, Allied is. RioCan is retail only.
