You're inferring gentrification is exclusive to lower classes. It also applies to suburbia moving into older "hobbit" communities because it's the thing to do over a change in lifestyle. Chain stores, etc. follow.

I have another guess. Gentrification concerns is being dismiss as NIMBYism

So what happens with the retail spaces currently occupied by Sears?

Do the property owners bulldoze (in some instances) and build to suit or is it cheaper to try to take less rent to get a business in there and pay the basic utilities as it sits empty. The city can only support so many Spirit of Halloween outlets.

I'd have to think that someone might jump on the Southcenter location, but I can't think of who. There aren't really any retailers that aren't here that would need that much space. Maybe a second Simons location?

Some of the locations vacated by Target still don't have tenants.

Not a good couple years for the retail REITs.

Southcentre could possibly become a Simons. North Hill will likely be demolished as I believe there was already talk about redeveloping the area. As to when? Who knows.

The Marlborough space will probably have to be reconfigured. Large mall anchors are obviously a dying breed.

When Marlborough gets redeveloped it could really be spectacular. The land footprint is huge, with excellent transit and road connectivity, with a good amount of services already existing. It is also not very far from downtown. There is also that poorly used SE corner of Memorial and 36th directly south of Marlborough.

[EDIT]

Sorry - my comment was about the entirety of Marlborough Mall. I didn't mean only the Sears piece.

Is the Marlborough location still open? I thought it closed a couple of years ago!

Pretty sure it's closed. I think the only Sears department stores still open are at North Hill and South Center.

Even with the Sears there is a ton of wasted land at North Hill, sitting on a great location between two important roads, two LRT stations, a new 'BRT' line and next to SAIT, ACAD and a mall. Remove the Sears and there's a great opportunity to develop that area - I only hope they would tie in a road/LRT reconfiguration there to make it more efficient.

It sounds like Sears is dead so you might get your wish. Does Sears own their property at North Hill or is it the mall owner? The entire mall area should be redeveloped as far as I'm concerned.

Deerfoot Outlet mall had a Sears outlet that closed ~4 years ago. It then became a Showroom Furniture Store.

The new Deerfoot City mall has revamped that space into a Cineplex Rec Room which is set to open Oct 13. The new mall looks very promising.

I believe in 2014, Sears was to sell half their interest in the North Hill property to Concord Pacific. Not sure if the deal went through.

I’m a little surprised that the Chinook SFA store will not have a food hall! There’s not a lot of grocery options in the neighbourhood. Would have cool if they could have added another floor to the store to accommodate it. A missed opportunity IMHO, given the money that is in the area!

So Chinook will have the Bay on the South end, Nordstrom on the North end and Saks in the middle. That's pretty impressive!

The new VIP Cineplex in Seton is set to open mid-December 2017. The wait for this has been excruciating. It was originally announced in 2012.

There is also a Cineplex Cinemas in East Hills under construction. The more the merrier!

“We will open a brand store on 17th Ave. S.W. in Calgary in the spring of 2018. We have high brand awareness and a lot of existing customers in Calgary and are really excited to open a store in that market for our community there,” says Cheesbrough.

From just having seen the UA outlet at Sawgrass Mills, you aren’t missing much.
We need an arcteryx/Solomon outlet, Patagonia outlet and north Face outlet. Also a Cole Haan outlet and a larger Nike outlet.
A Pottery Barn outlet would be nice too.

The carousel has been removed from the Chinook Mall food court.

Kinda disappointing they did this. I enjoyed taking my nieces on it when they came to town.

Did I hear correctly on tonight’s Global News at 6 that the removal of the carousel enables a $17 million renovation of the food court to proceed? $17 million?!?!? Is this number in line with other mall food court renovations completed recently?
