For Waterbridge Capital, which shelled out $27 million for the Orchard Street Pink Building, it’s all going to plan. Boot the commercial tenants in an effort to attract more well-heeled tenants and clientele. Modern Decor and Cellini Uomo were forced from the premises over the summer, and the two spaces sat on the market for months for upwards of $10,000 apiece. Both commercial units are now filled by the same – more gallery glut.

In place of the recently-departed Modern Decor at 319 Grand, we now have a showroom called Avant Garde Vapour Gallery. The hardwood floor was recently polished and new countertop installed. Opening reception is November 22 (Saturday) with an exhibit by artist Artem Mirolevich called “Tree of Life.” It runs through December 12.

Foley Gallery relocated from 97 Allen St.

Cellini Uomo was replaced by a familiar face. The Foley Gallery, which departed 97 Allen Street earlier this year, recently set up shop inside 59 Orchard.

We’ll keep an eye on this property. There are still a number of businesses that Waterbridge would love to shed, including the small stretch of printers on the Orchard frontage. All are reportedly on short-term leases.
