■Yonge and Bloor

My Old Hood

Yonge and Bloor is one of my favourite areas in Toronto and is my old hood before I moved to east end one year ago. Last weekend before heading to an Italian Restaurant in Yorkville, a couple of my friends and I passed by One Bloor East construction site. 

“Crews were hastily working on the lower floors that made up part of the 75-storey building's podium.” We saw “the massive, curvy podium increased in height by a few storeys." The first developer purchased the site which used to be called Hayden Square. After they demolished two-storey buildings in December 2008, I remember the site remained vacant for a couple of years. It has been more than five years!

Sooner or later low-rise commercial buildings on the south-west corner of Yonge and Bloor would be demolished for a new development. It is exciting, but Tenants in the buildings must have been going through lots of headaches as I can imagine being asked for higher rents by Landlord.

If you are interested in moving to Yonge and Bloor/Yorkville areas and would like to know details on condos, please contact me!
