A unique ‘one-stop-shop’ retail space is coming available in downtown Toronto at 276 King Street West, and is being hosted by pop-up retail facilitator pop-up go. The street-level loft-style space can house one tenant or multiple tenants, and is available from now until December of 2018.
Called KINGDOM, the 1,330 square foot space has a street front entrance a few steps north of busy King Street West on Ed Mirvish Way. It’s a busy area — more than 40,000 pedestrians pass by daily, and the Entertainment District is otherwise known for its many events and festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival which takes place in September. The area houses various restaurants and hotels (the Ritz and Shangri-La are nearby) and is also accessible by transit, including street-car as well as the nearby St. Andrew TTC subway station.
The space is being hosted by pop-up go — the company’s Chief Connector, Linda Farha, notes that KINGDOM is a one-stop shop with an opportunity to benefit from pop-up go’s marketing and execution support. The goal is to make the space a ‘turnkey solution’ and as such, pop-up go is also offering services from staffing to social media, retail design, and payment processing to “work like an extension of one’s staff” for whatever tenant, or tenants, choose to lease the temporary space.
Brick walls, high ceilings and an otherwise open concept characterizes the space, which at one time was a fashion retail store. Pop-up go has designed the space so that it can house up to five smaller vendors or even one larger vendor, if desired. The premises includes electricity and heat, air conditioning, washrooms and a kitchen. The space cannot be used for parties or cooking, and pets are not permitted.
