Mall owner Cadillac Fairview partnered with local developer SHAPE and GBL Architects to undergo the comprehensive mixed-use redevelopment on 27 acres. Syber has was awarded this project from general contractor Axiom Builders.
It will replace the former Sears building, the existing multi-storey parkade, and ground-level parking lots to create a multi-building, horseshoe-shaped redeveloped around the existing indoor mall building, which will remain.
There will be 12 new mid-rise buildings reaching a height no greater than 14 storeys or 148 ft, with retail space located within the lower floors, and residential space within the upper floors.
Over 2,000 homes will be built, including about 1,850 market units, as well as 150 affordable units for low-income individuals and workforce households within two purpose-build rental buildings operated by non-profit housing providers.
