Any ideas and thoughts on what you think should happen or what you think will happen?

Something similar to the main floor of the Avord Tower (Atlantis/Flip) would be wonderful. Set back glass curtain with outdoor seating along it. Multiple spots for sandwich shops, coffee shops or bistros.

That is straight of Jenifer Keesmatt's 2010 Downtown Neighborhood Plan.

Big Move 7: Friendly Fa├žades
Existing buildings, at street level, remediated to create a lively, animated
pedestrian realm.
Following the lead of the Atlantis Coffee site, existing buildings that do not support the
experience of the pedestrian will be transformed to enhance it. The Cornwall Centre, on
all sides, will be opened to the street; existing parking structures will be transformed to
have active uses at grade; and office buildings will have greater transparency at the
street.

Starbucks on 11th looks like it is ready to open very soon. Apparently there are a few more coming as well.

How many floors does the Tramps store on Scarth encompass? It would be an amazing flagship retail or perhaps restaurant and bar.

Two & a basement, I believe.

I've heard rumours that this is where the Artful Dodger is moving to. No idea if there's any truth to that, but they did mention on their Facebook page that their new location will be on Scarth Street.

That's almost certainly where they are going. They'd also like the public to pay for it upfront.

Nope, old Marvel Beauty School.

BrutallyDishonest2 Sep 24, 2017 3:59 PM

Even crappier. Though that building hasn't sold yet, so I'd be interested to know who the landlord is supposed to be.

I will try to get more clarification tonight.

Festivus Sep 24, 2017 7:26 PM

So Artful Dodger will be moving into the old Marvel Beauty School location? How is that worse than the Tramps location?

Just a crappier building, that's all I meant.

Stormer Sep 25, 2017 3:12 AM

Maybe Scarth will become a nightlife street. Fat Badger is pretty busy and of course O'Hanlon's. Edit: I forgot Beer Bros.

That building was once a theater. The Princess Theatre built in 1910

I was able to confirm last night.

Stormer Sep 25, 2017 11:21 PM

This building survived the Cyclone of 1912:

Lots of reports of that building being haunted. I know they recently had some "investigations" done.

I used to be the after hours janitor for that building in the mid-90s, and I hightailed it out of there many a time... I felt like I was not alone.
