The centre is buzzing and the beginning of construction is just around the corner. This month, we said goodbye to some of our retailers:
At the same time, some of our retailers are moving to temporary spaces within Manulife Centre to help facilitate construction. As much as possible, signage will be posted around the Centre to direct you to your favourite retailers.
The $100 million redevelopment at Manulife Centre will add 35,000 square feet of new retail space. The redevelopment will include a complete overhaul of the exterior of the Centre, as well as a reconfiguration of the interior space. We are also pleased to welcome Eataly to Manulife Centre – their first location in Canada.
Construction to the exterior of Manulife Centre is set to begin in April at the corner of Bloor and Balmuto Streets. During construction some of your usual pathways and entrances to the building may also be rerouted. We will make it a priority to communicate with all of our tenants during construction to minimize disruption.
We hope that you are as excited as we are about the changes taking place at Manulife Centre. Check back here for ongoing construction updates and images.
Redefining Bloor & Better as your urban hotspot for shopping, dining and entertainment. A $100 million redevelopment of Manulife Centre will add 35,000 square feet of new retail space and will include a complete overhaul of the exterior of the Centre adding a glass façade and welcoming new retailers. Inside, there will be some reconfiguration of the Centre as well as the renovation of several of our key tenant spaces.
We’re proud to welcome Eataly to Manulife Centre. Eataly, a vibrant Italian food marketplace including a mix of food market, restaurants, and eataries will span three stories for a total space of 50,000 square feet. Ours will be the first-ever Eataly in Canada. It’ll be like food shopping in Italy, but right here in Toronto.
We can’t wait.
“The transformation of this landmark property and the modernization at the corner of Bloor and Bay will build on the tremendous changes that are taking place in Yorkville,” said Kevin Adolphe, President & Chief Executive Officer of Manulife Real Estate. “Manulife Centre will feature a premier shopping experience and offer some of the most exciting dining in the city. We’re looking forward to bringing this to Toronto.”
