Would have to look into the cost of completely building a new food court out at cross iron and compare I guess.

If they are going to make changes to the floor, I can see how that could cost $17M.

There are all kinds of different levels and stairs and ramps galore in that food court. in several places it's open to below. That kind of work gets expensive really fast.

I didn't even know they had a location in Calgary! I love their Halifax location, a really cool spot!

This is the same we see here in Vancouver too, small business (or even medium sized in Vancouver!) closing due to these higher costs. I really wonder how much landlords make and if they are really cashing in, or if their rents are just keeping them afloat too. I'm inclined to believe their profits are really good compared to the business they raise rents on

Calgary-based Landmark Cinemas plans to open a premium movie theatre at CF Market Mall in Calgary by the Spring of 2019.

Market Mall, which opened in 1971 and has about 200 stores and 900,000 square feet of retail space, is co-owned by Cadillac Fairview and Ivanhoé Cambridge.

Darren Milne, Market Mall’s general manager, said the shopping centre’s customers are eager to have a theatre there.

And so did Northland Village Shoppes a couple miles north.

Seen a pile of movies in those 2 theaters back in the late 80's and early 90's.


I wonder if the new theater is going to be attached to Market... or stand alone?

If it supposed to go where Staples was, then it'll most likely be a stand alone building.

Not really retail, but Top Golf is coming to Calgary in the very near future. Not sure where exactly but my money is on Trinity Hills or Deerfoot Mall

Inside Calgary's Saks Fifth Avenue

Western Canada's first Saks Fifth Avenue location opens at CF Chinook Centre on February 22.
BY ALANA WILLERTON

The entire top floor of Saks Calgary is dedicated to women's apparel. In the contemporary department, shoppers will find more casual, everyday wear and denim from brands like Rag & Bone, Alice & Olivia, Smythe, Joie, Nanette Lepore and Saks' own in-house brand Scripted. There's also outerwear from notable Canadian brands like Canada Goose and Moose Knuckles.

The dress department features women's formal wear in a range of styles and colours. Directly beside this department is a fur salon with luxurious fur jackets and vests from brands like Carolina Herrera and Givenchy.

Downstairs in the jewellery department, guests can shop from brands like Hearts on Fire, Alexis Bittar, Lele Sadoughi, Kenneth Jay Lane, Pomellato and more.

The expansive men's department on the lower level features shoes, athleisure wear, denim, formal wear and more. Eventually, made to measure custom suit services will be offered down here as well. Saturdays are a particularly good day to visit the men's department, as there will be a bar set up here each week.


PHOTOGRAPH BY ALANA WILLERTON

1OO22-SHOE is the women's shoe department at Saks Calgary. The department's zip code name is meant to signal that this area is a destination within the store. Shoppers will find everything from sandals to boots from Manolo Blahnik, Alexander Wang, Jimmy Choo, Kate Spade, Stella McCartney, Vince and more. The clear and yellow glasswork that hangs above the shoe department was inspired by the glasswork display in the shoe department at the Saks Fifth Avenue location in New York. Artists in the Czech Republic made the glass installation that's in the Calgary store.


PHOTOGRAPH BY ALANA WILLERTON

The handbag department is surrounded by small individual handbag shops dedicated to specific brands like Loewe, Givenchy and Valentino.


PHOTOGRAPH BY ALANA WILLERTON

The beauty department features luxury fragrances, cosmetics and skincare products. Look for products from notable brands like EB Florals, Hermes, Chanel, La Mer, La Prairie and soon, Giorgio Armani. Those who want to experience these products first hand can book a facial in the adjacent spa treatment room. Walk-ins are welcome, but it's recommended that you make an appointment in advance.

I’m surprised that they are still going ahead with it, despite the loss of Whole Foods as a tenant, unless a replacement has been found but just not publicly announced.
