I'm not sure why people are so worked up about retail branches closing from a health-of-downtown perspective. As long as it doesn't go unoccupied, banks are not very exciting tenants. Nobody goes downtown for a bank branch, bank branches don't bring street activity, they close early, there's no positive spillovers (nobody leases a space based on proximity to a retail bank)...
BMO is vacating the Newport Centre, consolidating to 201 Portage. Next up for Newport is the podium renewal they will be trying to land a restaurant tenant in a new renovated expanded space.
