Cadillac Fairview is transforming the entire food court in CF Chinook Centre with a $17 million investment.
This will be the latest major upgrade to the Calgary centre’s food court since the last completed revitalization in 2000. The updates will improve capacity, design and aesthetics to elevate the shopping experience for customers.
“Dining is an essential aspect of the overall shopping centre experience and we are delighted to evolve the centre’s food court into a signature CF Dining Hall where guests can enjoy culinary delights in a premium environment,” said Josh Thomson, vice-president of development for Cadillac Fairview.
The renovation will include expanding and modernizing units, enhancing décor elements like tiling, upgrading furniture with communal tables and banquets, and the implementation of sorting stations to improve the overall experience for guests. The project will also revamp the centre’s existing outdoor patio. The 30,000 square feet of redeveloped space will feature 835 seats and 20 dining options.
In addition to the centre’s food court revitalization, Cadillac Fairview is also investing $4.5 million into the south portion of the centre in 2018, with a focus on new tiling and railings.
The first construction phase will start in January 2018, with completion and opening scheduled for June 2018. The second phase will commence in June 2018 and is scheduled to finish in October 2018.
