Landlord Ivanhoé Cambridge has provided an update on its 1.2 million square foot Tsawwassen Mills mall project, which is set to open in South Delta, BC on October 5 of this year. Construction is well underway and is expected to be completed on time, and over the weekend the centre hosted a job fair as retailers at the centre look to hire about 1,000 people. Construction began on the massive centre in January of 2014.

Exterior facades continue to be installed at the centre, and the custom exterior for anchor tenant Bass Pro Shops is now complete, according to Ivanhoé Cambridge. Indoors, construction is well underway — hardwood floors have been installed throughout and wood and metal panelling is being mounted. A number of tenants have taken possession of their units and begun work on their interior finishes, as well. Closer to the October opening, Coast Salish native artwork from members of the Tsawwassen First Nation will be displayed in the mall.

The centre held a job fair over the weekend, where approximately 60 retailers provided information and accepted applications, in an effort to secure about 1,000 new employees. When the shopping centre is fully open, Tsawwassen Mills and its retailers will create up to 3,000 full-time and part-time jobs.

When open, Tsawwassen Mills will include nearly 200 retailers, including 16 anchor tenants. First-to-market retailers will include Bass Pro Shops, DSW Designer Shoe WarehousePro Hockey Life, Saks OFF 5TH, The Outlet by Harry Rosen and Marc Cain. We provided a full list of announced Tsawwassen Mills retailers in an article last month

A substantial food component will also be featured, including a 1,100 seat food court and several restaurants. Milestones and Montana’s Bar & Grill will also operate locations at Tsawwassen Mills.

The stunning storefront took months to build, features Kith Treats and a restaurant concept from New York City, and could be a game changer for the Bloor-Yorkville area.

The Canadian footwear retailer had a presence in the area for decades until recently, and now it returns in a space that is steps from Holt Renfrew.



  1. This is exactly what they should of done with the Outlets Collection at Niagara…. it’s a real shame they went with an outdoor style racetrack design rather than an enclosed one like this or Vaughn Mills. The winters are brutal in Niagara I don’t know what they were thinking!?

  2. Tanger did the same thing in Ottawa, build a non enclosed mall in the middle of a former farmers filed off of the highway, with some roofing installed and fireplaces. The biggest complaint I hear after the not so outlet pricing, is the cold, and need to wear coats, hats and gloves and remove, and put back on, as you venture from store to store.
