Edmonton Airport Outlet Mall to be Larger than Anticipated

Retail industry news delivered directly to you. Subscribe to Retail-Insider.

Ivanhoé Cambridge has announced that Edmonton’s Outlet Collection at EIA (Edmonton International Airport) will be larger than expected. The 100-store centre will be 65,000 square feet larger than originally announced, spanning an impressive 415,000 square feet. It will be Edmonton’s first-and-only ‘pure’ outlet centre. 

The enclosed mall will anchor the airport’s Highway Commercial Development project, a plan by EIA to create an expansive shopping, office, entertainment and hotel development adjacent to the Queen Elizabeth II Highway at Airport Road. 

The Outlet Collection at EIA will feature “warm modern fashion-forward districts” and a dining hall within the enclosed “industrial chic” shopping environment.  The property will benefit from two new services: 

1) An airport shuttle service which will provide quick access to airport travellers, including those on longer layovers, and 

2) A parcel storage service to accommodate shoppers who buy on the way through, with a pick-up service on the return leg of their travel. 

“We are very pleased with the momentum of this exciting project, a natural evolution of our Mills and Outlet Collection banners,” declared Paul Gleeson, Executive Vice President, Global Development, Ivanhoé Cambridge. “Based on the overwhelming success of our first Outlet Collection at Niagara, which opened in May 2014, and the Outlet Collection at Winnipeg which is to break ground this coming summer, we look forward to bringing this shopping experience with irresistible outlet brands to the people of the greater Edmonton market.”

We’ll report more on the outlet mall as details become available.
