MONTREAL — Cadillac Fairview has announced it will spend $67.5 million to build a market-style food hub at CF Promenades St-Bruno on Montreal’s South Shore.
The new Marche des Promenades will feature a 35,000-square-foot Avril Supermarche Sante, Saint-Houblon Brewery, restaurants and artisanal retailers and producers, stated a Sept. 12 release. The market will include both permanent and seasonal food vendors.
The project includes interior and exterior space and an outdoor public plaza designed to host a year-round events. There will also be dedicated patio spaces for new restaurants. The Marche des Promenades is scheduled to open in the fall of 2020.
The company has invested $175 million in phased property upgrades at CF Promenades St-Bruno, beginning with a $49-million redevelopment of the property completed in October 2015, which included renovation of all public areas and upgrades to all dining amenities.
A subsequent $35-million redevelopment of the Sears location includes a flagship 53,700-square-foot Sports Experts/Atmosphere store that opened in May 2019. This fall, a new 43,500-square-foot Winners megastore will open.
Work is also underway for the new two-level flagship La Maison Simons store at the property. Simons will remain open throughout the expansion and the new expanded store will be completed in 2020.
“This latest project is a continuation of our significant investment at the property, with exciting new food and beverage offerings to enhance our overall customer experience,” said Brian Salpeter, senior vice-president of development at Cadillac Fairview, in the statement.
Cadillac Fairview is owned by the Ontario Teachers’ Pension Plan.
