Client: Shoppers Drug Mart, 500 King Street, Toronto
Type of Project: Interior Fit-Up
Approx. Value: $600,000
Located in the same building as a previous project, Royalty was familiar with working at this address. Working with the landlord ALLIED PROPERTIES REIT, the designated Heritage building involved inherent challenges that we were accustomed to overcome. The exposed brick and post and beam construction provide a unique look for the familiar Shoppers Drug Mart retail layout.
One of the key concerns was placing refrigeration and heavy equipment on the aging structure, something carefully calculated and designed to ensure the building was appropriate for the use.
Custom signage, flooring and column dressing provided the details that help this location stand out from the rest. The store is located in the busy King West part of the city where condo dwellers welcomed the arrival of a new pharmacy and drug store to their neighbourhood.
