Les Galeries de la Canardiere, the 180,000 square foot mall in the heart of the Ecoquartier D’Estimauville in Quebec City is celebrating its 60th anniversary in October. Reportedly the first mall in Quebec City, the project includes many retailers, restaurants, recreational and services catering to the needs of its community. These include national and regional tenants such as A&W, Subway, Pizza Charest, Lunnetterie Visque, Rockclimbing centre Delire, Econofitness, Dollarama, Bijouterie Suisse, Pharmacy Lavoie, etc. Les Galeries de la Canardière is located in an area conducive to mixed-use development as the area has been rezoned to high density by the city and all around the site, many office buildings and housing units have been constructed in recent years. These developments and the city’s vision for the area will result in significant pedestrian traffic to the centre. Mixed-use developments are the way of the future. It's a place where people can live, work and play, all in one location. The landlord, Econo-Malls has been working with a residential developer on a redevelopment project for Les Galeries de la Canardiere. The mixed-use redevelopment will have mixed-use buildings constructed on the centre's excess land. Phase 1 of this project, a 126-unit residential building with some commercial space on the first floor, will begin in the Spring of 2021. Econo-Malls’ Natacha Menard and Vanessa Sotos are marketing the leasing opportunities that are available in the mall and the future development.
