501 Lakeshore Road Development
The building is finished and many new businesses are opening their doors. Coffee Culture is great and has plans to open street-side cafe seating on Lakeshore when the weather permits. This is good news. PetSmart is well stocked and is a good place to go for all things pet. The only problem with PetSmart is that we were promised that all the businesses would have open doors onto Lakeshore Rd. The doors exist but PetSmart has opted for entrance only from the rear parking lot. This is a disappointment. Hopefully the new retailers as they come in choose to open their doors to the community street. Comments to this effect from our residents is probably the best way to achieve this as doors have been installed on the street if the business chooses to use them.
Now that Walmart has opted not to operate out of the site, the community should consider what kind of retail or commercial might go in there. Perhaps we can generate some interest. My question to the community then, is what great idea do you have for the massive space in on the 2nd floor of the east building???
Please feel free to post your ideas in the comments section of the website.
