Outlet Mall? In Edmonton? Why not?

Who does not like shopping? Specially when you have a lot of stuff to choose from, right?

December 4, 2013, a news broke out about the proposed plan of building an 85-outlet mall at Edmonton International Airport.According the Edmonton Journal “the developer Ivanhoe Cambridge and the airport announced Wednesday (December 4, 2013) about the conditional agreement for the project called, The Outlet Collection at Edmonton International Airport. Also, according to the journal “the new mall will be located next to the QEII Highway and south of Airport Road.” The mall is said to open on the fall of 2016, but do not be excited yet, because the contract for the proposed plan is not signed yet. The signing of the contract will be held early next year, 2014.

According to a source, Myron Keehn, EIA Vice President of Commercial Development said in a news release  that “This is great news. It means more shopping, entertainment and hospitality options, not only for passengers, but for Greater Edmonton. The airport is a self-funded not-for-profit corporation, so airport revenue that is generated by leasing the land for this project will be reinvested into building better air service for the Edmonton Region. Ultimately, this will support more flights to more places”.

Even though it is an awesome news for big shoppers like me, it is not the right time to celebrate just YET because it is only a proposal and not every proposal is always approved.
