Clearview Market Square open for expansion

Some businesses to open by summer

A deal is in the works to bring dining and loads of entertainment together in a single establishment in Clearview Market Square.

Daniel Eggert, vice-president of the property development division of Melcor Developments Ltd., said Friday he couldn’t name the business, but a deal is in the works to bring it to the next phase of commercial development at the junction of 67th Street and 30th Avenue.

He said the liquor-licensed facility would have pool tables, bowling, arcade games, karaoke, and more.

“It’s not in Red Deer yet. It would be great for the community. It’s a category that’s growing across Canada,” Eggert said.

“It’s entertainment where you go out to have fun with friends and family.”

Preliminary ground work began on phase two of the Clearview commercial area in late August. Preparations have begun on three buildings.

One of them, located near Shoppers Drug Mart, will include the Mexican restaurant BarBURRITO and A&W. Mobile 1 Lube Express and Tireland will be built in two buildings on the north side of the square, closer to the banks.

Eggert expects the buildings will be open in time for summer.

“We’re working on other deals. Until they’re done, we can’t share them.”

He said the market is slow, but Melco is committed to continuing to invest and develop in Red Deer.

Eggert said it will probably take about four years to finish building the second phase, or sooner, depending on how quickly deals are made.

The northeast corner, closest to the roundabout, will likely be the last to be built.

“We’re building it out when there is a business for the building. We’re starting at the ends and working our way in.”
