Hazelton Lane Remixes for Luxury

Hazelton Lanes is no stranger to luxury. The Toronto, Canada shopping center currently welcomes over 2 million visitors a year, many of whom are women in the “cosmopolitan elite” or “urban uptown” demographics – if you’re unfamiliar, think middle class to wealthy urban women with plenty of disposable income.

That local population is growing rapidly, however, and Hazelton Lanes doesn’t intend to be left behind. So the center is embarking on a large-scale transformation to re-establish the centre as an all year round community hub for Bloor-Yorkville residents and surrounding neighborhoods.

Part of that transformation involves working with center retailers. Changes will include a major expansion of Whole Foods with the creation of a 50,000 square foot flagship food emporium to be complete with gourmet take out and dine in facilities, and the incorporation of TNT Woman & TNT Blu Concept into a two-level boutique department store.

The other major aspect of the renovations will be the creation of a new centre piazza, to be named the “Oval Square”. The Oval Square will give shoppers a haven in which to relax and unwind. Along with some striking new architectural features (including a balustrade with mezzanines and balconies, and a boldly designed curved stairway), the Square will feature a variety of seating options – soft seating, lunch bars, community tables and free-standing tables, all within range of wi-fi access. It will also feature a permanent raised platform that will spend time as both a seating area and a stage for special events such as celebrity appearances, fashion shows, cooking demonstrations and community events.
