Here’s what’s coming to Toronto’s new downtown shopping centre & food market
It’ll have Canada’s first-ever Prince Street Pizza!
A massive new neighbourhood is on its way to the city and with it, a whole bunch of new spots to eat, drink, and shop. The Well will occupy 8 acres of Toronto’s downtown core, along the western side of Spadina Avenue from Wellington to Front.
When it’s complete, The Well will have over 1 million sq ft of office space, six residential towers with over 1,700 suites total, a large event venue, a retail centre, and a food market.
With the development well on its way to completion, a representative told Curiocity that several retailers and food vendors have already been confirmed.
The shopping centre will span 420,000 sq ft across four levels and “fluidly designed” indoor and outdoor space. It will be home to new flagship stores, pop-up shops, and popular brands in fashion, beauty, fitness, health, home decor, and more.
Among the confirmed retailers are Arcadia Earth, Sweat and Tonic, HealthOne, Bailey Nelson, and the first Canadian location of New York City’s popular Prince Street Pizza, known for its mouthwatering square-shaped slices.
Also coming to The Well is Wellington Market, a 70,000 sq ft hall described as Toronto’s “newest go-to location for market fresh and artisan food, culinary exploration and experiences to share.”
The liquor-licensed market will have a row of restaurants headed by renowned chefs, as well as a 22,000 sq ft event and entertainment venue, and many vendors selling fresh, local produce, and artisan fare.
The vendors coming soon to the market include La Cubana, Hooky’s Fish & Chips, Ren Sushi, a new Korean-focused concept, Chun Yang Tea, Lobster Burger Bar, Rosie’s Burgers, Isabella’s Mochi Donuts, and Sweetie Pie.
Rob Armstrong, who oversees the office developments at The Well, told Curiocity that while the retail spaces likely won’t be occupied until early 2023, some of the retailers “might be in business by the end of the year.”
One thing’s for sure — the downtown core is about to transform in a big way.
