CB2’s Queen West opening will be delayed until—at least—2012
CB2 announced its official opening would take place this fall, but we found out this week that those in search of modular furniture, nesting chairs and other bric-a-brac may have to return to their regular haunts. CB2 has pushed its opening to “2012,” stating “ [It’s] thrilled to preserve the heritage of the Big Bop,” but in the process of doing so, the “older building [brought] unique and sometimes unexpected challenges.” It may be taking longer than design geeks would like, but we do think it’s admirable that CB2 is committed to restoring a historical location, rather than tearing it down. We can wait, but what we’re really wondering is if it might be pushed to 2013—we figure it will take a long time to clean up decades old stains and remove the ghosts of former high school bands.
One thought on “CB2’s Queen West opening will be delayed until—at least—2012”
The official opening is Jan. 21st. The external scaffolding was just removed yesterday and the restoration work on the building looks absolutely beautiful! Good work CB2!
