Your comments reeks of sarcasm but it's loaded with ignorance. Perhaps you're not familiar with Nordstrom's Rack. They are a discount retailer. I wouldn't be surprised to see another discount retailer fill the rest of the space along with fast food.

This is a great location for retail, just not high end retail. It's too middle of the road.
Wait, people don't want to spend $5000 on a handbag in a store next door to a gigantic strip club and 5 rub-n-tug massage parlors? Well excuuuuuse me. :)

Well, there are 'discount retailers' and "discount retailers". Even though they ARE certainly cheaper than Nordstrom they are definitely not cheap!

Nordstrom Rack is an off-price retail chain, think along the lines of Marshalls. Sask Off Fifth is another comparison that's often given, but even their prices are more inflated. Typically the interior of Racks arent designed to be very flattering but this location is fairly different than the typical Nordstrom Rack store.

The east side of Yonge directly south of 1 Bloor has to go, the sooner the better.

Anyone with their ear to the ground know of any doings transpiring there?

On the balcony glass note, it's been a great year for fritted glazing. One Bloor, Casa II, and Harbour Plaza have all turned out well.

Did you get any more pictures of the glass? Because that one looks like it was fabricated backwards. The thick piece of glass in the lammy should be on the outside, against the wind.
Generally both pieces of glass in a laminated piece of glass are of the same thickness. Most suppliers will quote the same two pieces of tempered for a laminated piece. I don't believe that I've ever supplied or installed an offset piece of lami, but I suppose it could be done. From a manufacturing standpoint, it adds headaches as the lites going to the laminating line need to be send in a very specific sequence.

Here are a few photos of the One Bloor glass up close. I believe what may be deceiving in the original photo was the polished edge of the curved glass, as it adds a slight bevel.
