Tsawwassen First Nation Retail Development Under Way – BCBusiness

JAN 29, 2014

Two massive retail projects break ground on Tsawwassen First Nation land

Last Friday, January 24, marked the first day of construction for two massive projects on Tsawwassen First Nation Land that have been in development for the past two years: Ivanhoé Cambridge’s Tsawwassen Mills shopping centre and Property Development Group’s Tsawwassen Commons outdoor retail centre.

In May 2013, then-newly elected Tsawwassen First Nation Chief Bryce Williams spoke with BCBusiness about his new role and taking over the development deals that were already in place. Regarding the existing plans for the commercial development of the TFN’s land, Chief Williams said, “It’s going to be crucial to the sustainability and growth of our community to have those in place.”

The Tsawwassen Mills shopping centre will occupy 1.2 million square feet, featuring 16 anchor stores, plus a mix of fashion brands, factory outlets and restaurants, and a 1,100-seat food court. The Commons will be 550,000 square feet of outdoor retail space with national, regional and independent retailers, restaurants and financial services.
