As reported in Retail Insider today, First Capital has purchased the retail podium of One Bloor East. As has been mentioned before, Nordstrom Rack, opening next fall, will take 38,600 square feet of space, 10,000 of that on the ground floor and the rest on the floor above. Still no announcements covering the remaining 46,000 square feet of leasable space.
Ya, what kind of high end retailer wants to be above two major transit lines, at a very well known corner in a beautiful building.
The other space will be a value village for sure, and a chester fried chicken. Who else would want that location?
