NEW GLASGOW, N.S. — Crombie Real Estate Investment Trust has announced further details of its $112-million redevelopment of Avalon Mall in St. John’s, N.L.
Crombie began the multi-phase redevelopment in 2017. Besides expanding and revamping retail spaces, interior common areas were upgraded with porcelain tile and acoustic ceiling tiles, and updated LED lighting fixtures added, stated a Feb. 25 release.
The food court was expanded and upgraded with additional seating and furniture, and sorting stations that allow the mall to divert organic waste to an on-site composter. A four-level, 875-space parking structure opened in 2018, and the project included a redesign and realignment of vehicular access to Kenmount Road.
Among retailers, SportChek, Tommy Hilfiger, Skechers, Bikini Village and Michael Hill will open at Avalon Mall this year occupying approximately 40,600 square feet. Bath & Body Works, EB Games and Bentley will relocate from their current locations in expanded footprints, and Tip Top moved to a new expanded location in early February.
