That amount is considered "cosmetic" in today's market when it concerns anchor spaces, at least from their perspective. Also, in the due diligence phase, Target opted out of many of the older stores still in existence and I am aware of one instance where they were coaxed into taking all of the Zellers stores in one landlord's portfolio when the landlord sweetened the deal and agreed to retrofit the Zellers space for them in one particularly (a B to C class Shopping Centre) old store.

I was by the new Wallmart site today. Looks like all of the steel structure is up and about 75% of the roof is on. It looks like it will be ready for a fall opening.

While out and about this weekend, I noticed a couple of "coming soon" signs on empty lots here. Marshalls is going into the new building to be built next to Metro, and The Brick is going in a building to be built between Zellers/Target and Staples.

There's a few there from a couple of weeks ago, I believe. Just a generic big box complex with a sea of parking in the middle. The "old" Zellers is now gutted and being turned into a Target. The Walmart looks almost finished.

And ugly too. Just did a walk from the Active Green & Ross on Ottawa ST N., over to the Tim Horton's in the mall by Kenilworth.

Spent the vast majority of my time walking on asphalt. This is not pedestrian friendly at all. Just a vast sea of asphalt with the occasional (cracked) sidewalk, some of which just end nowhere forcing you to step out into traffic.

Terrible, terrible design. Saw more than a few older locals trying to walk to certain stores, some with canes, others with small carts, most of whom were cutting across parking spaces and roadways.

They blew it.

Why do you say that? It's a terrible layout but it's certainly not a dump.

Giant Tiger is a Canadian success and Goodlife Fitness's Fit4Less is moving in too.

This isn't a mall. It's a suburban power centre dumped into an urban setting. Giant Tiger is just one more discount store. I'm very surprised that Dollarama doesn't have an exclusive deal with the power centre owners.

This place is a total joke.
Cities that don't have their heads up their backsides are transforming malls and box stores into proper urban hoods....Hamilton can never do this tho because height NIMBYs

Thought id come here to see postive posts about a canadian success story filling the void left by a failed American entrant..... i was wrong

Much rather have a canadian retailer like giant tiger move in rather than wal mart. Also goodlife moving there is welcome news. The area needs a viable gym option.

Thing is, brands exploit nationalism because it improves the bottom line. Even when the ownership changes they continue to milk it, like Tim Hortons, now owned by a private-equity firm in Brazil.

So forgive me if I don't care who owns Giant Tiger. I'll bet their customers don't care either. It's a private company.
