Today marks the ground breaking of the expansion of Ottawa’s Ridea Centre. By the spring of 2015, the mall’s expansion will include a 105,000 La Maison Simons store as well as Nordstrom, which will join the mall as its southern anchor.
The groundbreaking will be at the corner of Rideau Street and Nicholas Street, being the future site of the La Maison Simons store.
Last year we reported that Nordstrom would open a 157,000 square foot store in the mall , replacing the top two levels of a former Sears store. Nordstrom is expected to open some time in the spring of 2015. Simons will open at about the same as Nordstrom.
Saks Fifth Avenue could open across the street from Rideau Centre within Hudson’s Bay’s department store, though we have no further details at this time.
