Is Apple Opening a Massive Flagship Store on Bloor Street?
One of the busiest intersections in Toronto may be home to a brand spanking new flagship Apple store. The website MacRumours discovered that Apple has been named in a document for planning for The One – the massive 85-floor condo project located at Yonge and Bloor. The architecture firm Foster + Partners has been named as the firm behind the project and they have partnered with Apple on several occasions in the past.
Apple has yet to confirm the arrival of a Toronto flagship store, but according to MacRumours the uncovered planning document is the first concrete evidence pointing towards the realization of a massive Toronto Apple Flagship store. The intended flagship Apple store will be located at the base of the condo surrounded by other retailers and would have access to Toronto’s PATH system.
Despite the uncovering of the planning document – this isn’t a guarantee that Apple will sign the lease and make it official. While the GTA already has four Apple stores a street front flagship would be the crown jewel of the collection and will be a cornerstone to the revitalization of Yonge street south of Bloor and north of Dundas.
