The Colonnade, at 131 Bloor Street West in Toronto, is one of Canada’s most prestigious retail addresses. We’re providing floorplans and description of the two-level retail plaza.
The first level, floorplan above, includes Chanel, Coach, Prada, Michael Kors, Cartier, Fogal of Switzerland, Escada and Sephora. The floorplan shows Lacoste in space 103 and an empty space 110, at 470 square feet. Lacoste has closed and it will be replaced by Mulberry, as we previously reported, and space 110 was most recently home to upscale glove retailer Sermoneta.
The image above shows a close-up of the eastern-half of The Colonnade’s ground floor. We’ve marked Mulberry’s new location. Notice the large Prada store. It was originally much smaller but annexed an adjacent retail space to grow to almost 6,000 square feet.
The Colonnade’s second level lacked retail space until Chanel leased 4,200 square feet on the second floor. Chanel opened its ground-floor store in 1989 and with the second-floor expansion, it is the complex’s largest retail tenant at over 7,300 square feet. Michael Kors and Cartier have since created larger stores by occupying second-floor space in The Colonnade.
According to Retail Insider’s ACT7 of Urban Toronto, the second-level space 209 on the floorplan above, marked ‘Japan Foundation Library & Museum’, is papered-over on the outside. This may become the second level of the previously mentioned Mulberry store.
The Colonnade opened in 1963 and includes over 70,000 square feet of retail space, over 25,000 square feet of office space and 157 rental apartments above. Surrounding retailers read as a ‘who’s who’ of luxury retail and include Gucci, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Tiffany & Co, MontBlanc, Burberry, Hugo Boss, MaxMara and others.
