Oxford Properties Group plans to redevelop and expand the former Target location at Upper Canada Mall in Newmarket, Ontario.
Plans will include the introduction of a one-level, 64,000 square foot Sport Chek, a 40,000 square foot “first-to-market Food Market concept,” a new two-level feature court space and a 35,000 square foot vertical expansion. Construction began this month and the redevelopment is scheduled to open in phases throughout 2018.
The Food Market concept will focus on the local community and create a unique food experience. Oxford states it will be “a place of convenience and comfort, and a reflection of simpler times.”
The Food Market will feature about 25 market vendors with an assortment of fresh foods and prepared take-away options, including produce, a butcher shop, a fish monger, a cheese shop, a bakery, a juice bar and a gourmet gift shop. It will also be anchored by full-service restaurants located at a Yonge Street-facing entrance.
“Oxford is committed to enhancing the food and beverage offering across our national portfolio,” said Brad Jones, senior vice-president, retail, Oxford. “The opening of the Food Market at Upper Canada Mall will create a new and elevated shopping experience for our customers, and we know will be a welcome addition to the mall and the community.
