There's a BP application in for that new restaurant space on Douglas Street, but it's for a presentation centre. Womp womp.

 

Could it be for this project?

 

I hope so. The folder description says "Tresah Presentation Centre," which means nothing to me.

Another super exciting retailer coming to Mayfair soon: Lenscrafters.

 

I thought it was just Richmond, but the apparent influx of eyeglass stores seems to be hitting Victoria, too.

Maybe people are having difficulty seeing the locations of the newly opened gyms.

clearly (pun intended) a highly profitable business.

^Very clever, but also a rather obscure reference to Dr. Clearly, my ophthalmologist.

I see what you did there.

Mayfair shopping centre is about to be sold

https://www.timescol...sold-1.24323557

 

 

 

No terms of the Mayfair deal have been made public.

 

Ivanhoe Cambridge, the real estate wing of Caisse de dépôt et placement du Québec (CDPQ), has had the Victoria mall as well as Lower Mainland shopping centres Tsawwassen Mills and Guildford Centre on the market in recent years.

Mayfair has been acquired (or will be when the deal closes) by Weihong Liu, a businesswoman from Vancouver with ties to China, who recently acquired partial ownership rights to Nanaimo’s Woodgrove Centre.

Makes sense as Woodgrove was also an Ivanhoe Cambridge property

The new owner of Mayfair shopping centre and the commercial lot to the south where Bed Bath and Beyond is located is embarking on a long-term development plan for its holdings that includes new housing.

 

Neighbourhood open houses are set for Monday and Tuesday to share ideas and goals prior to a detailed plan being drawn up.

 

The goal is for owner Central Walk to submit a rezoning application and application to change the official community plan in early spring.

Surface parking in the north end of the COV is going to be non-existent in 10 years or so, just as it is downtown currently - (with the exception of the Inner Harbour, which of all places is where surface parking shouldn't be).

 

As much as it changes the "tone" of any given area (loss of wide open spaces and lengthy view corridors), surface parking is the first thing to go when available properties start to get scarce, and very expensive ... and developers start to get an itch to "develop".

This just further reinforces how integral Tresah has been to the change in direction for that part of the city.

I would imagine that "reimagine" means something similar to what's been done in Vancouver at places like Metrotown and Brentwood mall.

 

It's packaging a large shopping mall along with a massive residential complex, with residences either above, or beside the actual shopping mall.

 

Seems folks (at least in Vancouver) love the concept ... albeit that in Vancouver the SkyTrain runs almost straight through the Brentwood developments residential living rooms.

^ I think the reality is that urban malls have been dying for the past decade. Many have tried to mix in office use to utilize the space with limited success so residential seems to be the logical next step.

The first midway of the year opens Thursday at Mayfair mall, with rides booked onto the site for the first time in the shopping centre’s 59-year history.

 

Spring Fair at Mayfair opens at 3 p.m. Thursday in the parking lot near the junction of Blanshard and Finlayson streets, and will include rides, games, and food.

 

Amusement park favourites such as the Sizzler, the Zipper and bumper cars are among the dozen rides and activities being offered through the four-day run.

 

The fair is open until 10 p.m. Thursday through Saturday, and until 6 p.m. on Sunday. There is no admission fee to enter the site, but ride coupons are $1.25 apiece, with each ride requiring between three and six coupons.
