|150 Bloor Street West|
A new 15,000 square foot Louis Vuitton Maison will open Summer 2012 at 150 Bloor Street West in Toronto. It will replace a 6000 square foot location across the street at 111 Bloor Street West. Insiders tell us that the current Louis Vuitton store will become Christian Dior, but we can’t confirm this.
This will unquestionably be the largest Louis Vuitton store in Canada, surpassing the 10,000 square foot Maison that opened (an expanded location ) in the Hotel Vancouver December 2010. A Louis Vuitton ‘Maison’ is referred to as such both for the store’s size and the fact that ‘maisons’ include some sort of art instillation.
Tiffany & Co. will open a slightly-smaller location next to Louis Vuitton, with approximately 3000 square feet on the ground floor and 8000 square feet on the second floor. The current Tiffany & Co. store at 85 Bloor Street West will subsequently close, vacating approximately 13,000 square feet over four floors.
