Surrounding Real Estate
Toronto is experiencing a massive real estate boom. As giant shopping malls like Sears and Toys “R” Us go bankrupt, their vacant properties are up for grabs.
For example, Yorkville’s Manulife Centre (a five-minute walk from 1 Bloor) is getting a $100 million makeover. It will also be home to Toronto’s first Eataly location, offering Italian groceries, snacks, beverages, and restaurants.
In fact, the entire Bloor-Yorkville area is undergoing “rapid intensification,” especially the famous Mink Mile shopping district.
Toronto’s Waterfront is also experiencing an urban renaissance. A new mixed-use community called Sugar Wharf is rising, complete with condos, offices, retail, groceries, parks, and an elementary school.
Most noteworthy, the city is investing $260 million in infrastructure to solve the area’s lack of rapid transit. That means more buses and light-rail transportation near 1 Bloor.
Bloor-Yorkville and the Waterfront are just a few examples of this urban renewal.
The reality is developers are tearing down old shopping centres and putting up high-rises, forever changing the face of Toronto.
