Eaton Lofts

It'd be nice to see them jump on this and move quickly. I can't imagine there would be a ton of work to do on the main floor to get it ready for leasing.

The main floor work indeed looked preparatory for actual work to bring it to a usable state.

I am so looking forward to that streetfront corner being brought back to an acceptable condition.  I wonder if the Bolero Caffe and neighbouring storefront on the Water St side will be incorporated into the larger main floor space, or if we will see them retained as separate commercial spaces?

There's a piece in today's Record with more information on Perimeter's thinking for the first floor - looks like multiple tenants could be the way they are leaning.  With the mention of a grocery store as a potential tenant - Perimeter and the American Hotel Block guy need to get together and decide who gets the grocery store and who gets the Downtown LCBO!  Wink

Here are some pictures taken last week showing the current state of the ground floor of the Eaton's Building:

Today's Record has a story about Eaton's Lofts, mostly focused on the condo owners, who have surely had a challenging ownership period. However, things are now looking up for them, too:

Half a year since the last update.. does anyone know what's going on here? I went by here around Christmas and didn't see a grocery store, nor any progress on the condos above. I think everyone would like to see this building finally upgraded, as it's been pretty embarrassment for the last decade.

I believe all the rework for the condo owners is finished, but certainly does not seem to be any movement on commercialization of the ground floor, grocery or otherwise.

Might the LCBO go in here after all?
