Hazelton Lanes announces a $10-million makeover in tandem with expanded 50,000 sq foot Whole Foods

The city's ritziest mall is getting a makeover.

Hazelton Lanes, responding to the expansion of two of their anchor tenants, who I turn are responding to an explosion of condo residents in the neighbourhood, are undergoing $10 million in renovations, to be completed by October.

The biggest mall-wide change will be the conversion of the south atrium into what Lanes vice president Edward Liu calls the Oval Square, designed by architect Johnson Chou Inc.

"There's an opportunity to take advantage of our rotunda space, that was formerly an ice rink, and create a community space to use on a year-round basis," Liu says.

The mall, with about 60 tenants in 165,000 square feet of rentable space, was originally developed by Richard Wookey and opened in 1976.
