That amount is considered "cosmetic" in today's market when it concerns anchor spaces, at least from their perspective. Also, in the due diligence phase, Target opted out of many of the older stores still in existence and I am aware of one instance where they were coaxed into taking all of the Zellers stores in one landlord's portfolio when the landlord sweetened the deal and agreed to retrofit the Zellers space for them in one particularly (a B to C class Shopping Centre) old store.

I was by the new Wallmart site today. Looks like all of the steel structure is up and about 75% of the roof is on. It looks like it will be ready for a fall opening.

While out and about this weekend, I noticed a couple of "coming soon" signs on empty lots here. Marshalls is going into the new building to be built next to Metro, and The Brick is going in a building to be built between Zellers/Target and Staples.

There's a few there from a couple of weeks ago, I believe. Just a generic big box complex with a sea of parking in the middle. The "old" Zellers is now gutted and being turned into a Target. The Walmart looks almost finished.

And ugly too. Just did a walk from the Active Green & Ross on Ottawa ST N., over to the Tim Horton's in the mall by Kenilworth.

Spent the vast majority of my time walking on asphalt. This is not pedestrian friendly at all. Just a vast sea of asphalt with the occasional (cracked) sidewalk, some of which just end nowhere forcing you to step out into traffic.

Terrible, terrible design. Saw more than a few older locals trying to walk to certain stores, some with canes, others with small carts, most of whom were cutting across parking spaces and roadways.

They blew it.
