As reported by the National Post
Markham firm Living Realty Inc., has announced an ambitious expansion proposal for the city's Pacific Mall. Already the largest Asian mall in North America--with 270,000-square-feet of retail space--the new plan calls for another 250,000 square-feet for retailers, an on-site hotel and five new layers of parking.
"The mall, which sits at the northeast corner of Kennedy Road and Steeles Avenue East, is a popular tourist attraction: It's "like Christmas shopping there every weekend," said Mr. Wong, who has been in charge of marketing and sales for the mall since it began selling units in 1993."
"Unlike conventional shopping centres, the Pacific Mall has cubicle-like units, starting at a standard 145 square feet. Stores are comprised of one or more units. Due to the small nature of the stores, Mr. Wong said the mall often attracts new immigrants looking to start businesses."
"The project has not yet been approved by the Town of Markham. Mr. Wong said he estimates the project will be completed in about four years."
