The Well: Retailers and Offices to Anchor Mixed-Use Community
Just over a month ago, UrbanToronto published a story on the phasing strategy for construction at The Well, a massive new mixed-use and master-planned project for Downtown Toronto at the northwest corner of Front and Spadina. As demolition has been ongoing at the former Globe and Mail Headquarters site since February, more information detailing various components about the ambitious Diamond Corp, RioCan, Allied Properties REIT, and Tridel project been released in the time since.
Serving the rapidly intensifying King-Spadina neighbourhood, the development team are planning to introduce 432,772 ft² of retail space at The Well. With roughly 17,000 people already living within a 500 metre radius of the master-planned community, three north-south pedestrian streets provide greater permeability into the site, with the retail integrated on four levels.
