Ontario mall getting major renovations
July 11, 2013 by STAFF REPORT
Mississauga’s second largest mall is getting a $100-million facelift.
Built in 1989, the Erin Mills Town Centre will undergo its first-ever renovations over the next two years to transform the aging mall into a vibrant urban retail destination with a sleek, modern design.
A glass sphere with a circumference of 283-ft. will replace an existing clock tower, skylights will be upgraded to clerestory windows and the centre court will boast an infinity pool surrounded by communal seating.
The mall’s main entrance will feature a 54-foot high clear glass ceiling and a revamped and expanded food court offering an eclectic mix of food and dining options spread out over two floors. Glass enclosed restaurants will be located on the lower level and a food court with on outdoor patio will be on the upper level.
“In celebration of our upcoming 25th anniversary, we want to give our customers a world class shopping experience,” said Nance MacDonald, vice-president of Erin Mills Town Centre.
MacDonald added that the mall will be open for “business as usual” during construction.
Phase 1 gets underway this summer, beginning with the food court, which is scheduled for completion in the fall of 2014. Construction of a Target store begins in the fall and is expected to wrap up by the summer of 2014, and the entire mall’s renovation should be done by the summer of 2015.
