Good News/Bad News
The McD's at Pape&Cosburn is closing.
The bad news, they intend to re-open in 3 months.
A McDonald's in Toronto that closed for renovations to be modernized from its beloved, classic style is really upsetting the neighbourhood. That is...www.blogto.com
Apparently, area locals believe this closure will cause the sky to fall; and in the event that it does not, the upcoming reno will surely induce the apocalypse by causing Mc'Ds to have a more gentrified interior.
I'm merely appalled that this site hasn't been sold to a developer!
To be honest. that McDonald's is pretty much THE main public gathering place in Pape village.
No big parks near by, the Coffee Time closed down - there are only a couple of very small upper class coffee shops.
The old Greek men will have no where to meet.
I will have to drive further out to get my daughter a happy meal or a Big Mac for myself a few times per year.
Where will the teenagers grab their lunches?
Do we need more condos? or fancy cafes?
I think the McDonald's there is good for the neighborhood and am curious about what they'll do to renovate. Outdoor patios?
I hope V Nails stays alive. It's the best nail place around, small, clean, non-chemical smelly. The massage chairs could be in better condition but I am happy otherwise with this place and look forward to going again.V Nails is back open. They must have just been renovating or papered over their windows for some other reason.
The restaurant space in that block opened on August 10 as Kings & Queens Gaming Lounge. Or maybe they were open before COVID but not sure. You'd think I didn't walk past it almost every day.
BK opening 2 locations in east york - on Danforth / Broadview in (almost) same location as the old Mcdonalds.
Now now Pape north near the Food Basic ...
I wonder if BK is doing an A&W type of expansion.
Change of plans. The site is almost certainly going to be used for Ontario Line Cosburn station construction.Any updates regarding the new Shoppers that was supposed to be built at the northwest corner of Pape and Cosburn? Not much has been happening there for a long time now...
