We have done some extensive coverage on the redevelopment of 333 King Street East in the past. Formerly completely occupied by the Toronto Sun's offices and printing presses, the Sun's presence has now been downsized to just the second floor. Sold by the Sun's parent company to First Gulf, the building is now set to take its first retail tenant. Loblaws-owned No Frills is set to open a new store here on March 4. That will be followed up with new LCBO and Dollarama stores.

While the architecture is lacklustre to say the least, we are sure happy to see this dreary section of Front Street come to life. As residents of the lower east side we hope No Frills will cause the other grocery stores in the area to take a look at the prices they charge.
