When the two-year, $100 million overhauling of Yorkville Village — formerly Hazelton Lanes — is complete, the old shopping centre will be unrecognizable.





“We’re not renovating; we’re not doing a facelifting; we are completely building a new mall,” said First Capital Realty CEO Dori Segal of the 285,000, square foot plaza which adopted the new moniker last month. “Our marketing team thought that to reflect that major change you have to also have a name change.”


First Capital and its parent company Gazit-Globe purchased the site for $110 million in 2011 with a vision to connect the mall to Yorkville Ave., where they own another $100 million worth of real estate, including the buildings housing Anthropologie, Teatro Verde and Diesel, with a new main entrance next to The Hazelton Hotel.





“It’s a fabulous location, fabulous demographic, but the mall was, we think, not properly configured,” said Segal of the 38-year-old centre. “It was a maze. There was a way to keep it the way it was, but we thought given our position on Yorkville Ave. to connect Yorkville into the mall. “What I liked about this property very much is the combination between young students and well-to-do middle aged (potential consumers); it’s a great combination for retailers.”





North end anchor tenant Whole Foods is the only one of the existing businesses that will remain in the same spot. The others will be relocated and several are expanding. Of the new business anticipated, only U.S.-based fitness club Equinox is confirmed.


A soft opening of the south side, which is being completely gutted, is scheduled for next fall.

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword....wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple Wordpress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That's right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
