Pusateri’s Fine Foods Update
A Press Release was issued by First Capital Realty Inc. on August 4, 2016 announcing that they have purchased properties at the corner of Avenue Road and Lawrence. The sales agreement to First Capital was for $63.2 million and includes the Avenue Road Car Wash, the Carlson Wagonlit building and adjacent apartment building. The understanding was that Pusteri’s would reopen in the Fall and would remain on the site as part of the deal. Information has not been provided as yet as to First Capital’s intentions for redevelopment of the additional properties.
