Niagara Square’s new era may be anchored by Costco, but the redevelopment of the Montrose Road property won’t stop there.
Officials with Bayfield Realty Advisors, which owns the nearly 37,120-square-metre property in the growing southwest end of the city, said the transformation to its contemporary new concept will continue to see new openings in the coming months.
When the enclosed mall area of Niagara Square closed in 2017, it was viewed as the end of an era.
The mall, which opened in 1977, had been losing tenants, with less than 30 per cent of the 83 units occupied leading up to the shopping centre’s closure.
But now, with Choom Cannabis Co. and a new medical clinic having opened in buildings with outdoor access on the property, and Costco opening a 14.430-square-metre warehouse Saturday, officials are celebrating the dawn of a new era.
