MISSISSAUGA, ON, July 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Erin Mills Town Centre's Vice
President, Nance MacDonald is pleased to announce the exciting
transformation of Erin Mills Town Centre into the next architectural
landmark to grace the City of Mississauga. In its first major
renovation since opening in 1989, an investment of $100 million will
propel Erin Mills Town Centre into a vibrant urban retail destination.
The innovative redevelopment will be characterized by a sleek,
contemporary design with a clean international style. Succeeding the
existing clock tower will be a majestic architectural feature, an
iconic glass sphere 283 feet in circumference that will pierce through
the roof into the shopping centre's central court area. Existing
skylights will be replaced with modern clerestory windows, affording
visitors with additional natural light permeating the common areas.
More than just another mall's central open area, the main court at Erin
Mills Town Centre will be about the community and its people. The
expansive centre court will feature an awe-inspiring infinity pool,
surrounded by contemporary communal seating acting as the striking
backdrop for public events. It will be THE PLACE for the community to
meet, greet and be entertained.
In response to lifestyle trend shifts, food will play a pivotal role in
Erin Mills Town Centre's identity. The current food court will be
rethought, reworked and reborn. It will be significantly expanded to
become a unique destination for foodies seeking an elevated dining
experience. Located front and centre, two storeys of food purveyors
will entice visitors at the main entrance, dramatized by a 54 foot high
soaring clear glass grand entrance. On the lower level, the main
entrance will be flanked on either side by glass enclosed quality
restaurants making a clear statement that leisurely dining, lounging
and socializing are the new calling of Erin Mills Town Centre. On the
upper level, in addition to the varied seating environments, the food
court will feature an inviting outdoor patio offering magnificent views
of downtown Mississauga and the Absolute Towers.
"In celebration of our upcoming 25th anniversary, we want to give our customers a world class shopping
experience" says Nance MacDonald. "We conducted extensive research and
listened closely to our present and potential customers' feedback. It
was clear they were not looking for 'bigger' but a 'better' more
enhanced shopping experience, showcasing retailers that deliver trendy,
aspirational brands. We were inspired by their comments and plan to
deliver beyond their expectations!"
Construction will commence this summer with Phase 1 of the brand new
food court scheduled for completion in fall 2014. A new Target store
will start construction in the fall of 2013 and will be open for
business in the summer of 2014. The entire renovation, including the
new food court will be completed by the summer of 2015. Nance
MacDonald comments: "Although we will be under construction, we want
to assure our customers that we will continue to make their shopping
experience as comfortable and pleasant as possible. It will be
'business as usual' as we enter into this very exciting transformation
of Erin Mills Town Centre."
