Pacific Centre has announced a list of first-class retailers that will be moving into its 44,000 square foot retail expansion, and are scheduled to open in early summer 2015.
The stores will be accessible via a new entrance at Robson and Granville, and Pacific Centre will then extend from Pender Street to Robson Street, giving it profile and access from the city’s premium shopping strip.
The retail outlets are:
• BOSS Store
• Kate Spade
• Ted Baker London
• Weekend Max Mara
“We are thrilled to announce the arrival of 9 world-class brands at Pacific Centre,” says Tom Knoepfel, Senior Vice President and Portfolio Manager, Cadillac Fairview.
“These stores will enhance the shopping experience for our customers and give them another reason to shop downtown. Having the best selection of international fashion and tech retailers in one convenient location is a key factor in Pacific Centre’s continued success.”
Among the new brands is popular British fashion label Ted Baker London, which will be opening its first Canadian store outside of Toronto.
Four additional first-class retailers, which will be announced in the coming weeks, are scheduled to open their doors in the retail expansion by fall 2015. This includes the rumoured relocation of the mall’s Apple Store to a new and significantly larger location at the mall expansion.
Designed by renowned, local architect James K.M. Cheng, the new building will also include Vancouver’s first Nordstrom, spanning three floors. The top four levels have been converted to 290,000 square feet of AAA class office space and will be home to the head office of Sony Pictures Imageworks, the Vancouver offices of Microsoft, and law firm Miller Thomson.
On the building’s corner at the intersection of Robson and Granville streets, there will also be a new entrance to the mall.
The expanded Pacific Centre retail space is part of the redevelopment of the city block that was home to the former Sears building.
