“We’re seeing a movement back to the idea of the Market City, with markets acting as catalysts for creating centers in neighbourhoods.”
Project for Public Spaces

REVISED PROPOSAL:
MIRVISH VILLAGE MARKET—THE HEART & SOUL

The revised proposal maintains the proposed strategic mix of high quality retail. Fine grained main street retail is proposed along Bloor and Bathurst, responding to the area’s existing character and repairing it where it was interrupted by Honest Ed’s.

The Mirvish Village Market continues to act as a focal point for the site, offering vibrant community-oriented retail that draws people into the site. Restaurants, cafes, galleries and other retail uses will continue to operate out of the houses along Markham, featuring patios and outdoor spaces on the former front lawn spaces that work to activate the public realm.

Affordable micro-retail spaces line Honest Ed’s Alley, creating space for local start-ups and pop-up type uses, animating the alley and recalling the Mirvish Family’s entrepreneurship.

  • Mirvish Village Market will offer a culinary experience reflective of Toronto’s ethnic diversity and will draw from the rich resources of Southern Ontario’s craft food producers.
  • Mirvish Village Market will provide pedestrian access through the site, opening onto Markham, Bloor, and Bathurst.
  • At approximately 27,000 square feet, the market will accommodate over 30 permanent vendors and 40 temporary stalls.
  • Some retail units will have frontage on both the streets and the market, adding another layer of permeability to the development.
  • The soaring market roof will act as a warm and welcoming buffer from the elements, regardless of the season.
