Five years have passed since the completion of Crystal Blu, our sophisticated 35 storey tower that has become one of Toronto’s finest addresses. Over the course of the past five years we have seen significant changes to our neighbourhood, changes that have made residents even happier to call Crystal Blu home.
Located across from Holt Renfrew and the Manulife Centre, we have had the opportunity to get a firsthand look at Bloor Street’s significant makeover; a $24-million transformation to be specific. The project completed by the City of Toronto and the Bloor-Yorkville BIA has seen improvements such as the widening of granite sidewalks and the adding of a sustainable planter system for trees. The area has also seen the $400 million renovation of Hazelton Lanes.
The streetscape has been transformed into lavish laneway of high-end retailers such as Stuart Weitzman, J. Crew, Brooks Brothers, Mulberry and Nespresso along with luxury brands such as Dolce & Gabana, Burberry and Louis Vuitton.
But there’s more in store. The HBC store at Bloor and Yonge will be transformed into the second-largest Saks Fifth Avenue in the world and we’ll be getting a delectable new neighbour when Eataly opens its very first Toronto location in the Manulife Centre in 2019. Eataly, the Italian food palace that includes sit-down restaurants, casual eateries and a multifaceted marketplace will span 50,000 square feet across three storeys.
The first five years at Crystal Blu have been incredible and we look forward to what awaits in the years to come.
