Yonge and Bloor: What Will You Miss the Most?

It's hard to believe but it has been 5 months since Bazis International first formally introduced their plans for an eighty-storey condo/hotel Mega Tower on the South East corner of Yonge and Bloor. And whether you love it or hate it (and judging by the comments in my previous posts on this building, there are plenty of people on both sides), the reality is Yonge and Bloor is about to undergo a major transformation and will never be the same again.

This week word got out that the approximately 20 businesses who currently lease retail space in the South East corner of Yonge and Bloor down to Hayden Street have been given their eviction notices. Everyone has got to be out of there very soon as demolition is slated to begin in December.

While Bazis' intentions for the corner may be good, and surely we can call agree that the intersection ain't the prettiest, their choice of words in describing it has left some with a bad taste in their mouths. Bazis' director of Sales and Marketing described the corner as 'junky' and that they intend to make it 'fabulous'.

In light of the impending demolition of a major corner of our City, I'm calling on you, blogTO, to begin the mourning process by telling us what store/restaurant/shop you will miss the most once the wrecking ball comes crashing in. For me, without a doubt it is going to be Biryani House-in my opinion, the best and possibly cheapest Indian food in the city. Good-bye butter chicken, I will miss thee.
