You are, I assume, a big boy so could do this yourself. :->
Cool, thanks for the random attitude. Was not actually barking out orders; just showing enthusiasm for their post.
And please don't assume my gender K THANKS

short article with a few renders of a new restaurant, The Queenston, opening in the Bay Concourse. I’m happy to see more sit down options come to the station.


From the above.

This is a 10,000ft2 space that will be adjacent to SB arena, and the escalators to/from Bay St. Promenade.

I wonder how many people actually visit these restaurants?

Restaurants are becoming the pot shops of Union Station. There are so many of them in such close proximity I am not sure how they survive.

Back in Mar 2020 I noted that WVRST and Union Chicken were making fairly brisk business, particularly on sports event days. Proximity to SBA for the Queenston would make it attractive to people attending an even at SBA and looking to grab a bite to ear pre or post event.

The spaghetti place (amano's) didn't seem to be doing as well though.

Easily, if they are any good.

This area is already densely populated by both residents and workers.

By the time this place opens most people will be back at the office.

Pinnacle will be moving in residents in the not so distant future, thousands of them, it's 2 blocks away.
There's another huge office tower going in, directly across the street.

It's not hard to imagine how retail will be supported here.

Current traffic is too low, but that's the Covid effect, which will dissipate in the months ahead.

I (normally) work in the area, and pre-pandemic went to Wvrst and Amano fairly regularly, and Union Chicken once in a while.
