St John’s, NFLD – Enclosed Mall – Avalon Mall

Crombie REIT has launched a three-year capital investment program to enhance Avalon Mall's position as the dominant enclosed mall in Newfoundland and Labrador. Upgrades will enable Avalon Mall to continue to improve tenant mix and increase sales per square foot. The $54.5-million Phase I project coincides with the mall’s 50th Anniversary, and began in April with construction of a four-level, 875 space parking structure. The project will include a redesign and realignment of the Kenmount Rd. vehicular access, and the redesign and phased renovation of the centre's interior common areas, entrances and exterior facade beginning later this year.   All interior common areas will be transformed with contemporary porcelain tile, acoustic ceiling tiles, and wooden seating. Lighting will be updated to LED linear and recessed downlight fixtures. Natural light will be in abundance, as plans include a clerestory to replace existing skylights. Additional features designed to create an exciting and engaging visitor experience will be finalized and shared later this year.  Work will begin on the food court early in 2018, which will receive the same lighting, ceiling, and tile treatments as centre court, corridors, and atriums. A new store front design criteria will be implemented during the project that will align with the centre’s modern and simplified new look. Crombie is also planning for the redevelopment of an abutting property on Kenmount Rd. that was purchased in 2012. This redevelopment will improve two buildings with new retail space with modern design, provide additional parking, and integrate the redeveloped property with Avalon Mall by significantly improving vehicular and pedestrian connectivity between the two properties.  Avalon Mall is a two-level enclosed regional shopping centre located in St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador. It is the largest enclosed shopping mall in Newfoundland and Labrador at approximately 564,000 square feet of leasable area. Regional Property & Leasing Manager, Marcel Elliott is handling the leasing at the property.
