On December 12, the City’s Planning Committee approved a preliminary phase of the redevelopment of the Lincoln Fields Shopping Centre, a project that also promises to increase the supply of rental housing when it’s fully built. For now, two new commercial buildings for Metro and Rexall would be added to the site so that the mall’s two remaining tenants can relocate. The applicant could then demolish the mall in preparation for redevelopment.
Further work on the redevelopment would only move forward after completion of a City-led secondary planning process for the greater Lincoln Fields area.
The first open house on the Secondary Plan was held on Wednesday December 11, 2019. The next meeting will be held in the new year.
Items approved at today’s Planning Committee meeting will go to Council on Wednesday, January 29.
