Yorkdale Shopping Centre
2013 - Present
Urban Strategies provides planning consulting advice for the development of Yorkdale Mall. This has been an ongoing consulting relationship that has extended for the past 10 years.
Urban Strategies has been involved in three major changes to Yorkdale Mall. The first included the new Holt Renfrew Store and a number of smaller stores on the south side of the mall and was the first time that below grade customer parking has been provided at Yorkdale.
In the current construction taking place on the east side of the mall, it is being expanded to include a Nordstom department store and approximately 40 new smaller stores on the east side of the mall adjacent to the Yorkdale subway station. This addition will also include five levels of below grade customer parking. Also in the detailed design stages is an addition to the west side of the mall where a number of stores will replace the existing Sears store.
Urban Strategies works closely with the design team, the city staff and the developer to achieve the speedy time requirements of retail development. We are also involved in the longer term plan for the evolution of the mall.
