STOLLERYS has been a Bloor Street West menswear retailer of British and European apparel since 1901. It’s being taken down and will be replaced in the near future by a skyscraper designed by prominent British architect, NORMAN FOSTER. Developer SAM MIZRAHI bought the building in October, applied immediately for a demolition permit, it was approved on Friday, and work began on Sunday. Things happen fast at the ‘crossroads of TORONTO’.
