$280M expansion continues at Guildford Town Centre

Seeking to become first LEED Gold-certified mall in Canada.

Guildford Town Centre has launched the next phase of its $280-million expansion and redevelopment project, and is seeking to become the first LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold-certified shopping mall in Canada.

When construction work is completed at the end of 2013, the centre’s leasing area will have increased from 980,000-sq.-ft. to 1.2 million-sq.ft., which will make it the largest regional shopping centre south of the Fraser River.

The redevelopment will contribute to the local economy, creating 4,000 jobs during the construction period and at least 750 new permanent retail jobs upon completion.

“Guildford Town Centre has been a part of the Surrey community for over 45 years,” says Peggy White, general manager at Guildford Town Centre. “With the rich history we have shared with our community, we are extremely excited to be a part of the bright future Surrey has to offer.”

Once the project is finalized, Guildford Town Centre will welcome many new retailers. The redevelopment also includes an expanded 965-seat food court and a refurbished interior.

The project also aims to make Guildford Town Centre the most eco-friendly retail mall in the country, with the goal of becoming LEED Gold-certified.
