Top 5 Commercial Spaces for Sale/Lease in Mimico

Dry January was a bust, so Colin and I have committed to dry February (while also maintaining the Whole 30 diet; no sugar, no carbs). It’s been tough trying to find alternative things to do in our free time, which we would normally spend dining and drinking out. Yesterday (Saturday) we decided to work offsite and went to a great little Cafe on Lakeshore called The Sydney Grind. We got our coffees, opened our laptops and realized they closed in 10 minutes… it was 4pm.

We’re neighbourhood people - we want to spend our time and money where we live. There are tons of other 30-somethings looking for places to spend their money, and Mimico’s demographics don’t lie. With a booming population (thanks to the condo jungle), an average household income of 100,000+, and a majority of the population in the 25-45 year old range, the neighbourhood is a brick-and-mortar dream!

That’s why we’ve put together a list of Mimico’s hottest retail spaces for sale/lease right now.

This storefront is adorable and could be completely reimagined! With 1000 square feet, we’re picturing the perfect opportunity for a independent book store or boutique fashion retailer. It’s located right on Lakeshore so gets lots of foot traffic and there are no competitors in these markets! Think of the Good Neighbour in Leslieville, the only spot in the neighbourhood to buy fashionable clothing and gifts and they are busy all the time! See more >>
