Spadina Hipster Makeover

The Spadina Avenue strip in Chinatown is moving away from its traditional storefronts to newer stores, appealing to a different crowd and a younger hipster vibe. CBC Radio asks, what are some examples of traditional shops transforming for a new clientele? Hotel Ocho, Toronto's new boutique hotel has moved into the neighbourhood on the site of a former textile factory; the Clubhouse Sandwich Shop, a beer-battered, fried tomato hunger fix appeals to a younger generation and if it ever gets built, the Dragon Condos, a stalled project at Spadina and Dundas, will attract new clientele to the area.
