GSP Group provided planning and landscape architectural services for the expansion of Conestoga Mall from a community to a regional-scale shopping centre. Official Plan and Zoning My-law amendments were approved to provide for the expansion of Conestoga Mall from 35,000 to 63,000 square metres of retail space, transit terminal, service, cinema, and community space.
GSP Group created a water-efficient, contemporary landscape design for the new entrances, Waterloo Heritage Museum and Food Court Entry plaza, parking lots and outdoor amenity areas of the redesigned Conestoga Mall. An allee of trees are planted on either side of the main drive aisle, with furnishings to create a streetscape that is more pedestrian in scale. Storm water management pond planting, an improved pedestrian network, traffic calming techniques, and increased bike parking facilities throughout the site and at the Grand River Transit terminal complete the design. GSP Group also provided construction administration throughout the various phases of construction.
