    There have been discussions of redeveloping the parking on the south, west and north ends of the mall with some towers and parkade to replace the lost surface parking. The new raised LRT station to replace the temporary station at NAIT would be connected to mall, towers, and NAIT etc by pedway.
    Do you know if these discussions were with just kingsway itself or if they are working with the city? I really like and think the idea of a raised, more integrated with the mall station would be best for accessibility and future TOD.
    It involved the city and their plan to raise the NAIT LRT over the intersection with a raised station between kingsway and NAIT and pedway access to both facilities.

    Whatever they do, without a parkade on the north side to give access to the 2nd level tenant from the outside, it’s a bit of an awkward space. I really don’t know who would want that space. And wasn’t there a massive basement in that Sears space too? I would really love to see the city commit to the new raised NAIT/Kingsway LRT station so Kingsway would move forward redeveloping what has been mentioned before for the north end of the property.
    What were the previous plans for that end of the mall?

    Seems like many missed this. I'm positive this is still the case for some of the space in Sears.

    Kinda gives new meaning to the phrase “anchor tenant”.

    Maybe they can attract something out of the downtown core.

    Sears is being renovated.

    A full-feature Wal-Mart has a produce and bakery section, and a larger meat section. Probably more SKUs too. Westmount has a small store. Meadowlark has a full-size.
