If you have driven down Idylwyld lately in Saskatoon towards downtown you will notice some changes on the corner of 20th Street as well as changes up the block. Riversdale in Saskatoon is changing as at least four new tenants have been confirmed for the first block of 20th Street. It sounds like one of the main locations, the old Red Apple/Field building on the corner, could become a new health and fitness business. While the new tenants aren’t ready to make an announcement just yet we can see some changes happening already. The main entry will be moved away from Idylwyld and 22nd Street where it is currently located. It will be moved to the west side of the building, closer to the parking lot.
Next to this building is a healthy-eating cafe/restaurant that will feature items that are specific to dietary needs such as gluten-free and nut-free. The top floor of the Adilman building has also been leased and a retailer from Broadway will be relocating to the space attached to the Adilman building. These movements show that Riversdale is on the path to revival. It takes time but inevitably we will need more real estate in Saskatoon like these spaces so options like these for young entrepreneurs are great.
Hopefully these changes in Riversdale will help restore the area and change the perception of this location. Residents and businesspeople alike have been waiting for a long time for this change and it is starting to take shape.
Saskatoon real estate in both commercial and residential is changing to help enable new businesses and new opportunities. If you are looking to take advantage of Saskatoon real estate contact me.
