The retail future of the Canary District takes shape
When one thinks about the Canary District right now, two things likely come to mind: 1) the Pan Am Games and 2) condos. As the future home of the Athletes Village, that makes sense. But what of the future of retail in the neighbourhood? Part of that picture came into focus this afternoon.
Developer Dundee Kilmer has revealed seven of the retailers that will operate in the Canary District once the Pan Am Games have concluded and the area is transformed into a long term neighbourhood.
That's a healthy mix of business for the budding neighbourhood, which will ultimately boast about 46,000 square feet of retail space. Combine that with the cafes and stores opening on King East, and you can see that at least some lessons have been learned from the initially retail-starved CityPlace development.
