Oxford Properties Group is making an application to the committee of adjustment on Thursday Jan 10 to build a 2 storey building between Sears and Target. This will be interested to see if this application gets approve considering there is a bylaw in place to halt all construction in the city core until a study is completed sometime this year. There is also plans to build more single storey building pads around the mall. One of those pads will be use to store salt which is no no at this time regardless of the bylaw. If this 2 storey building is allow to be built as well the other pads, parking will become a mess. Time to beef up transit 7 days a week to this mall. Maybe the long over due parking structure will be built on the north side of Walmart. This extension will go over the underground mall area, as well remove the loading bays that are there now. The entrance to the underground mall will have to be close during construction as well the main entrance including Sears if this expansion is to connect to it. Had not seen any plans for it yet. It has been less than 10 years that the mall was redevelop to the point work has started by Target with the removal of columns and ceiling material. A few test section for the new roof columns went up in December. The escalators are block off to the public now. Various section of the mall ceiling has been removed for most of 2012 to determine what was what at various locations. The food court is to be expanded to the point Burger King close their doors Thursday night and Bowring removing the last of their items. The Sony store close in 2012 as well the church. Friday saw all 3 stores as well the walkway to the loading bay horded up in blue paint wall.
