Riocan will set rental rates this summer as Pivot is not due to open until Fall. They will be watching vacancy rates and rent values in the city (currently at a low 1% vacancy) before they set their rates. Pivot built small, condo sized units with 1 bedrooms under 500 sq. ft. In comparison, the adjoining Forest Laneway 1 bedrooms are about 800 sq. ft. FLW has raised rents 3 times in 12 months due to demand. Current rates are 1 bdrm.- $1625., 2 bdrm. - $1945., 3 bdrm. - $2450. plus parking at $135 per month.

Dollarama will soon be moving from their current 6,745 sq. ft. store to a 14,934 sq. ft. location near What a bagel with convenient entrance next to Shoppers Drug Mart. Moving into their old spot will be DSW, (Designer Shoe Warehouse); brand names at discount prices.

Good to see even more non-restaurant options coming in (DSW), as a variety of shops is important in creating a place that people travel to repeatedly and spend time in. I've been noticing lately how the mall is consistently populated and with a diverse mix of people. It seems like a healthy mix of local residents and subway commuters who aren't merely passing through on the way to the exit.

I wished they went with another colour other than black

Exterior finishes being applied; white metal panels around the base, rectangular concrete patio tiles form the floor, pergolas and flower beds. Looks like they're on schedule for a late summer-fall opening. No rent costs established yet as Riocan continues to monitor a changing rental market.

I like the look of Pivot -- anyone have an idea what the sq/ft sizes for the 2-3 bedrooms will be? I assume very small, but just curious as details and floorplans are slow to emerge.

I can't believe they didn't add direct access to the mall like the 3 Forest Laneway towers. Just looking into these units they seem to be very small, but I too would like to see the floorplans. Completion has been very slow here, perhaps a pandemic effect. A nice looking addition to the area.

There's direct access to mall - on both mall levels. Ok,... more like indirect access,.... directly east of Winners and Food Court are already existing corridors mainly for loading - utilize that to access Moving Area-Elevators or stairs to apartment lobby/elevators. Also, mall and apartment share underground parking levels.
