Il semble que ce soit dans les plans de Cadillac Fairview de construire un développement résidentiel, voisin au centre commercial. :thumbsup:

Fairview shopping centre undergoing major renovation
Fairview shopping centre is undergoing a massive renovation that will see the addition of a Simon's store and signature restaurants

JOHN MEAGHER, MONTREAL GAZETTE  |  Updated: February 19, 2020

The Fairview Pointe-Claire shopping centre will have a new modern look after undergoing a major renovation. GH+A DESIGN STUDIOS / CADILLAC FAIRVIEW CORP.

Since its grand opening in 1965, Fairview shopping centre has been a focal point of West Island life. It not only serves as the largest retail complex and a major employer in the area, its central location makes it a natural hub for bus transportation and connecter to Montreal.

Now in its 55th year, CF Fairview Pointe-Claire is undergoing a massive renovation that will see it reconfigured and polished up for the challenges of the 21st century retail market.

And with the construction of a new REM light-rail station — just west of where the old Fairview Cinema once stood —  Cadillac Fairview envisions a renovated shopping centre in close proximity to the REM, all within a short distance of another future CF project: a mixed-use residential development just west of the REM station that will transform the entire neighbourhood, and a large chunk of Pointe-Claire.

“With the land we purchased next door, that’s going to be a huge development which will make this one of biggest assets in the portfolio,” said Jeroen Henrich, Cadillac Fairview’s vice-president of development for Eastern Canada.

Cadillac Fairview owns four big malls in the Greater Montreal area: Fairview, Carrefour Laval, Promenades St-Bruno and Galeries d’Anjou.

“Fairview has a rich history because it was one of our first shopping centres,” Henrich said. “We actually built it . . . so we’re heavily invested there, both in the shopping centre and in the community. Many kids who’ve grown up in the West Island have worked there at one point in their lives, so it’s exciting.”

The shopping centre, which welcomes eight million visitors per year, is getting a more “modern contemporary look.”

“We’re spending about $30 million in new tiling, new railings, new LED lighting, new entrances,” Henrich said. “We have a partner in Ivanhoe Cambridge. We co-own the asset.”

Some of the biggest changes will see the addition of a Simons store and a new dining hall/food court that will include some signature restaurants.

“We’re planning a grand opening of the dining hall this September,” said Henrich. “By that time we’ll be able to announce who’s coming into the restaurants.

“The dining offering is limited (in the area) so we’re very keen to sort of capitalize… on bringing some exciting options to the West Island.”

Both La Maison Simons and the dining hall will be located in the former Sears outlet on the west side of the centre.

“The Sears box was one of the largest Sears in Quebec,” Henrich said. “Simons will be taking the second and third floors, and we’ll be relocating the existing food court, which is now on second floor of the north end, and that will move into the ground floor of Sears.

The popular Keg Steakhouse will remain where it is. “The Keg is a very important partner in of most of our centres. They do very well there and there is no plan to move them,” Henrich said.

Henrich said Fairview’s massive makeover is about staying relevant with consumers.

“And that includes changing retailers,” he said. “If you’re a native Montrealer, you might remember there was a Simpson’s there, Eaton’s, Pascal’s and Steinberg’s. Over the years retailers changes, the type of retailers change. The big format retailers like Sears, Target and Zellers no longer respond to customers, so we reinvent ourselves. Simons . . . and the dining offering is a huge part of that.”

The STM bus terminus will also be relocated near the new REM station.

While REM parking has yet to be determined at the site, CF Fairview Pointe-Claire says it will continue to offer its patrons nearly 6,000 parking spots.

Henrich said the Simons is expected to open in August, 2021, about a year after the dining hall.

I'm aware of the proposed development on the patch of woods to the west of the mall. I just think for the mall they could have added a highrise on top of the simmons , many malls are being converted this way in other cities (see brentwood mall in Burnaby BC)

I also think they should extend the mall closer to REM station (see metro town , again in burnaby)

“Overall, in terms of the centre being elevated now with Simons and of course new food offerings, the West Island does not have a huge selection of dining opportunities so we’re very excited to bring some new restaurants and of course the dining hall into the ground floor. We’ll be backfilling the existing food court with two new retailers. I can’t divulge who they are.”

It will be interesting to see which two retailers that will move into the existing food court.

They still need to find someone for the old Deco location.

Not sure if this was posted before or not.

So its a mall that's turning into....a mall?  

Disappointing, to say the least, considering the vocational shifts at CF commercial properties in the GTA and the Lower Mainland (Vancouver). It’s a HUGE piece of prime real estate that — in a declining B&M retail climate — has dedicated a good 60% of its space to parking. I expect that may evolve once the Fairview-West development starts. The Pte-Claire master plan shows a silhouette of Fairview that deletes Reno and extends west of the Simons end into the new development. It also eliminates the remaining car dealerships in favour of more TOD construction.

It may not happen in that configuration, but something similar by 2030.

One can hope. Ditto for Centre RioCan Kirkland, but there, the NIMBY backlash will be more acute. The McMansions abut the back of the property, and face it across the 40.

The problem is the South Shore communities seem to get it. 

Get the TOD's built in preparation for the REM (Solar, etc.) rather than let land sit vacant for decades.  Meanwhile the West ends up shooting itself in the foot by hand wringing for years, turning a blind eye to prime development space before finally doing something.  

I think we can all see what will happen:  the REM in the west is deemed a failure due to low ridership even though there has been zero moves to proactively create residential developments that would "feed" the stations.  Its ridiculous.

Tbf, the chosen route has a lot to do with it; Fairview is fine, and I expect the IC/CF partnership to bear fruit in the form of TOD/“walkable community” development on the adjacent land. RioCan has an eye towards similar vocation shift at Kirkland. But des Sources is in No Man’s (Person’s?) Land near a Belle-Pro and the Source du Sexe. Will warehouse workers walk kilometres on roads without safe sidewalks to get there? Or will developers push to get the area rezoned? And as we discuss in the Anse-à-l’Orme thread, that one is a completely wasted opportunity.
