Has anyone else heard the rumor that the new Douglas Street entrance to Mayfair is dedicated to do something with Amazon? I was told very matter-a-factly today by two different people this... and it confused the hell out of me.

The Douglas/Finlayson corner, or mid-block on Douglas? I think the corner is where the new Indigo (Chapters) is going.

Aging shopping centres, built decades ago as beacons of fashion and free parking on the suburban fringe, are gradually becoming relics on a sea of inner-city asphalt.

But rather than tinker at the margins to squeeze the last nickels out of old stores, some retailers are doing something dramatic with their biggest asset: land.

In what some call "retrofitting suburbia," fading food and department stores are reinventing their huge urban properties by filling them up with residential, office and retail space.

And with Sears Canada closing dozens of department stores, new opportunities in these "mixed-use" developments now abound.

So what's next for the Hillside Sears space?  I'm not reading many stories about other big retailers snapping up the space in other parts of the country.

 

However, could it become a Costco?  Walmart?

I assume they’d take out the second floor. I don’t think there is near enough parking for Costco there.

You know, with battery advances, I wonder if indoor go-carts are more economical than ever.

 

EDIT:  Vancouver, $19 per race or less.
