Edmonton’s Londonderry Mall is undergoing a $130 million renovation that will see an overhauled interior and several new retailers, including a new anchor. Londonderry is the latest mall to see substantial improvements in Alberta’s booming capital city. 

The mall’s common areas, mall entrances, flooring, storefronts, escalators, elevators, washrooms, ceilings and seating areas will be fully renovated. A new full-service dining experience will be added, relocating the mall’s existing food court to the west side of the mall. Interior and exterior lighting will be converted to energy efficient LED, and a state of the art security surveillance system will also be added. The project involves a partnership between MMC Architects and GH+A Design

According to mall floor plans, a new 75,000 square foot anchor store will also be added to the mall’s second level. 

Renovations coincide with the completion of Edmonton’s Anthony Henday Drive ring road in 2016. The surrounding area is growing substantially and the mall’s trade area feeds from affluent surrounding communities. Londonderry is the latest Edmonton mall to see substantial renovations, following improvements at Southgate Centre, Kingsway Mall and extensive renovation plans for West Edmonton Mall

The 779,000 square foot two-level Londonderry Mall currently houses about 150 retailers and features anchors Hudson’s Bay (118,000 square feet), Army & Navy (60,200 square feet), Save-On-Foods (38,300 square feet), Winners (31,800 square feet) and Shoppers Drug Mart (17,000 square feet). It boasts in excess of 3,500 parking spaces. 

When it opened in 1972, Londonderry was Canada’s largest mall west of Toronto, and the only two-level mall in Western Canada. The 85 store mall was anchored by Eaton’s, The Bay, Woolco, Safeway, and a movie theatre. In 1984, the mall added 65 additional stores and services.
