GSP Planning and Urban Design of CF Grand Market District
Fairview Park Mall in Kitchener will undergo a major transformation starting this spring, with GSP Group providing planning and urban design services to help Cadillac Fairview realize its vision for the space.
CF Grand Market District will be a mixed-use commercial space created by repurposing the former Sears building, including development of outward facing retail units. Office space and commercial / retail space will be added at the corner of the main entrance to the mall at Fairway Road, including future restaurant uses.
GSP group will also provide planning and urban design services to assist with the planning approvals required for mixed-use development on the undeveloped portions of the property, including additional office and retail uses along Fairway Road (adjacent to the Highway 8 interchange) and multiple residential uses at the rear of the property, adjacent to Kingsway Drive.
Cadillac Fairview said in a news release that it's committing $70M to develop CF Grand Market District. Groundbreaking is expected in spring 2019 with completion of Phase I planned for 2021.
