13850 Steeles Ave. W.. Halton Hills, Ontario
Cushman & Wakefield was mandated by the Simon REIT out of the United States to establish their first Canadian location.
The assignment consisted of a search for 40-70 acres of land with exposure to 400 Series Highways in Southern Ontario, mainly in the GTA.
Halton Region was chosen as the preferred location.
An agreement was reached on the re-zoning from Employment to Gateway zoning to allow for the 450,000 sf Outlet mall to be built.
It opened in August 2013 and was considered the best opening ever in North America of any of their Outlet Malls in the USA.
