Bower Place mall’s $30 million redevelopment to take a year

Shopper’s Drug Mart will move into the new Bower Place mall addition expected to be completed in fall 2019.

The $30-million first-phase redevelopment will see a two-storey addition with a new mall entrance added to the east side, where the now-demolished Target once stood.

Joining Shopper’s on the ground floor will be a number of other retailers. Their names will be released once leases are finalized, said Tony Segaric, a vice-president operations for mall owner QuadReal Property Group.

The second floor of the addition will see a large-format fashion retailer set up shop. Other space is being set aside for offices and services.

In recent weeks, the fencing on the construction side has been extended considerably. That is to allow for grading and paving of the entire east parking lot, said Segaric.

An average of 50 construction workers are expected to be on site during the whole of the year-long build.
