Multi-million dollar facelift for Edmonton’s City Centre

Edmonton, November 20 (CINEWS): Edmonton’s City Centre Mall has been looking a little tired, but not anymore. A $41.3-million renovation of the City Centre Mall will pay dividends for Edmonton’s downtown revitalization plans, according to a retail
The upgrade will see the mall consolidated from four levels to three, as the entire basement level is gutted and replaced with 300 parking stalls, and the top floor of the east side will become a 500-seat food court with space for 11 vendors. About half a dozen businesses on the top level will be relocated. The elevators and escalators will be upgraded and a central staircase added to improve access.
Olympia Trencevski, with Oxford Properties Group, said the revitalization will serve the changing needs of people in the city’s downtown.
All this is in anticipation of an influx of thousands of new residents who are expected to make downtown their home by 2019, as well as thousands of new office workers who are expected to occupy the new commercial office buildings currently under construction.” said Trencevski.
Construction is set to begin this month. The food court is expected to open in November 2016. The remainder of the project is set to open in the winter of 2017.
