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

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.

It’s expected that the STM bus terminal at the Fairview shopping centre will eventually be relocated closer to the future REM station to be built at the corner of Fairview Ave. and the Highway 40 service road in Pointe-Claire. GRAHAM HUGHES / MONTREAL GAZETTE

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)

      REM : une pétition pour la construction d’un boulevard urbain
        SARAH DAOUST-BRAUN Lundi, 17 septembre 2018 21:25MISE à JOUR Lundi, 17 septembre 2018 21:28 Un citoyen de l'arrondissement de Pierrefonds-Roxboro a lancé lundi une pétition en ligne demandant la construction d’un boulevard urbain dans l’ouest de l’île de Montréal pour rejoindre la station Kirkland du futur Réseau express métropolitain (REM).
      En juillet, Montréal et le gouvernement du Québec ont annoncé la création d’une voie réservée aux piétons, aux cyclistes et aux autobus, mais pas aux autos sur l’emprise de l’autoroute 440 pour accéder à la future gare dans Kirkland.
      Selon Daniel Elie Khoury, près de 380 personnes ont signé en moins de 24 heures la pétition. «On ne comprend pas l’utilité que ce soit seulement pour les autobus. Nous avons besoin d’un boulevard complet», a-t-il indiqué.
      «On ne vient pas réduire la mobilité, on ajoute un nouveau lien. Comme ça va donner accès à la station du REM, on veut le faire en fonction des réalités du 21e siècle. [...] Le "west island" est très dépendant de l’auto. Avec le REM, on veut briser ce cercle vicieux», a répondu le responsable des infrastructures au comité exécutif Sylvain Ouellet, lors de la période de questions au conseil municipal.
