Supposedly the development will be on a country club and equestrian theme...
another mall, just what we needed.
and with a country club or equestrian theme no less
These malls aren't enough:
Chinook - 1.3M SF
CIM - 1.1M SF
Southcentre - 1M SF
Market Mall - 900k SF
Sunridge Mall - 800k SF
Not to mention The Core, Northland Mall, North Hill Centre, Marlborough Mall, Deerfoot Mall and power centres like Westhills, Crowfoot, Deerfoot Meadows, Sage Hill, and all the others I'm forgetting. sooo much retail
