Are the rents on those units just untenable? Perhaps city taxes on empty storefronts should be adjusted to make filling them a more attractive option.

Most or perhaps all of the vacant units across the street are (probably/speculation) going to be turned into an LCBO.
Rana's "new" location really isn't new, it's been there for some time.
Also, restaurants don't generally move into just any retail unit; they prefer a place with the ventilation and other infrastructure for a commercial kitchen already in place.
