Hydro Tower RBC Branch Open
The 8500 sq ft RBC branch inside the Hydro Tower is now open bringing street life to the south side of Portage. Marcello's, the other retail tenant on Portage Avenue, has 'coming soon' signs up but is in the early stages of construction. The tower will have over 40,000 sq ft of retail space available, once completed.
That does leave RBC's temporary location at Portage and Hargrave, a former CIBC, now vacant. It's a great space with lots of light. Hopefully someone will be enticed by that.
I was standing outside Portage Place earlier today and a group of Sioux Falls S.D. tourists were waiting for their bus to pick them up. The were quite impressed with the building, cameras out. Also, I overheard a couple taking about all the flowers along Portage Avenue. Portage is looking nice !
