Medicine Hat Mall
Medicine Hat, AB
The redevelopment of the former Target premise consists of 118,000 square feet of redeveloped area, consisting of a new retail wing and new mall entrances, a new 575 seat food court with 12 food outlets along with a 23,000 square foot Marshalls and a 21,000 square foot Home Sense store. Along with an expanded Galaxy Theatres Xscape, several other new retailers will be added to the centre over the coming months. In addition, several improvements were made to the parking lots and accessibility from the major access roads to promote increased traffic to the centre. The majority of the project is anticipated to be complete in Fall of 2017 with some additional renovations continuing into spring 2018.
The former Target store in Kingston consisted of a two level 113,000 s.f. store. The reconfiguration plans involves creating a new front entrance, with two levels of glazing, and a completely new facades. The upper level will have two large non-major anchor stores and new common area that links to the mall. One of these stores will also have their own exterior entrance. The lower has two major tenants facing on to the common area adjacent to the recently completed new food court. There will also be new units on the lower that are accessed from the new upper common area with their own vertical transportation. This program also includes constructing a new passenger elevator in centre court to service the customers better. The existing escalators are being relocated to another location in the mall to facilitate this addition. Pre-planning was done in 2016 and construction has started in early 2017. The construction program is being completed in one phase and involves the relocation of some existing retailers. It is expected that the new mall and the first new tenants will be open early in 2018.
