Tsawwassen Mills shopping centre, in the Greater Vancouver Area, the largest built in Canada since 2009 and a partnership between Landlord Ivanhoe Cambridge and Tsawwassen First Nations, is now officially open.
Tsawwassen Mills, just 30 minutes north of the Washington State border, is a fully-enclosed centre with five distinct shopping neighbourhoods: Fashion, Outdoor Life, Coast Salish, City and Nature. Each features its own custom artwork and design elements. Currently, 180 brands are confirmed, including 18 that are first-to-market, such as Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, DSW–Designer Shoe Warehouse, Pro Hockey Life, Saks OFF 5TH, The Outlet by Harry Rosen, Michael Kors Outlet, lululemon athletica outlet, Browns Outlet and more.
The project has cost an estimated $600 million to construct. Features include a 1,100-seat food hall, four traditional sit-down restaurants, a children’s play area, a sports dome, six public entrances, 14 electric vehicle charging stations and a 6,000-stall parking lot. Additionally, several stores offer unique entertainment options, including a skate park in West 49 and a themed bowling alley in Bass Pro Shops.
Said Daniel Fournier, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Ivanhoé Cambridge, at grand opening ceremony on October 5, 2016: “We thank our friends of Tsawwassen First Nation for the spirit of cooperation since the very beginning of this great project.”
