Clearview Market nears completion
The business makeup at Clearview Market Square is becoming clearer, although a couple of question marks remain.
Only three bays in the trio of multi-tenant commercial buildings in the shopping centre west of 30th Avenue and south of 67th Street have yet to be committed.
But all have pending deals related to restaurants: with two earmarked for a national restaurant, according to the leasing brochure for the property.
Leah Margiotta, a development manager with shopping centre developer Melcor Developments Ltd., said on Tuesday that some conditions remain on both restaurant deals, so she can’t identify the businesses involved.
There are already several eating options at Clearview Market Square, including The Canadian Brewhouse, Subway and Pita Pit — all of which are operating. A Taco Time and a Starbucks have yet to open, and a Tim Hortons with a drive-through is planned for a lot to the west.
Other businesses now welcoming customers include Your Independent Grocer — which includes a liquor store and a gas bar, Clearview Medical & Walk-In Clinic, Dog & Cat Hospital, The Co-operators, Fabutan and Pet Planet. The Royal Bank, TD Canada Trust, CIBC and Servus Credit Union have all been operating for some time.
Shoppers Drug Mart is scheduled to open on Thursday, with Body Garage fitness centre, H&R Block, Clearview Market Dental Care and Safari Spa & Salon still closed.
Another phase to Clearview Market Square is planned, with Margiotta expecting that work there will be underway this year.
“We’ve got lots of different options there,” she said of the building types and occupants.
“It just depends on what kind of tenants come to the table.”
Meanwhile, city council on Monday considered an application for a land use bylaw amendment to allow a car wash nearby.
Pier Developments Ltd. is seeking to develop the car wash at 62 Carleton Way, which is on the west side of Clearview Market Square. I
t’s proposed for a site adjacent to where the Tim Hortons and a Shell service station are planned.
Council approved first reading of the bylaw amendment.
