It's been quite the few years for Main Street.
A couple of sizable buildings opened on land that sat vacant for many decades, namely the WRHA bunker and United Way HQ.
New joints like The Tallest Poppy, The Edge artist's village and Main Meats took over existing spaces. Even the McLaren got in the act with a sushi bar.
A couple of new projects are well on their way to completion.
Youth for Christ's Center for Youth Excellence at Higgins and Main is coming along and filling up a huge gap in the street scape.
The Bell Hotel doesn't look different from the front but from the back work is ongoing. The latest thing are new windows all around.
On the other side of the subway at Euclid, the former California Fruit Market is being transformed into the new, larger home of Neechi Foods. (Imagine if all the brick buildings along that strip lost their awful paint jobs !)
While I haven't been a fan of every project, as a grouping it's certainly the most development seen on Main Street in a few decades. Importantly, they are bringing more services and retail opportunities to a long neglected area.
