Concord Pacific's Thurlow and Alberni Street development, the Carlyle, just kicked out their last low-end tenant, the Dollar Tree, in order to make room for more luxury retailers. The area has solidified itself as Vancouver's luxury block with the likes of Burberry, De Beers, and Tory Burch already opened for business. There are a handful of other rumored luxury retailers who might be joining the downtown luxury block, including Gucci and Chanel. And while everyone is sitting on the edge of their seats (and saving their shopping dollars) in anticipation of which tenant might be next, Concord is expected to announce who exactly will be filling in the remaining vacant spaces of their high profile development. Stay tuned!
