Space at Clearview Market filling up

With city council approving the development of a McDonald’s Restaurant in Clearview Market Square during its meeting on Monday, vacant space in the northeast Red Deer commercial subdivision is almost gone.

With city council approving the development of a McDonald’s Restaurant in Clearview Market Square during its meeting on Monday, vacant space in the northeast Red Deer commercial subdivision is almost gone.

Leah Margiotta, a development manager with Melcor Developments Ltd., said on Tuesday that one more building could be developed on the site. The area concept plan had envisioned as many as three prior to the McDonald’s approval, but plans for the fast-food restaurant — which is slated to go in west of The Canadian Brewhouse — included increased parking where a second building had been earmarked.

Space remains south of a two-storey building that’s nearing completion south of The Canadian Brewhouse. National daycare Kids & Company is slated to occupy the second floor of that two-storey building, with the ground level to be split among commercial tenants.

So far, these include Booster Juice, The Pink Paire women’s clothing store and a nail salon.

“I think we’ve got three or four bays remaining,” said Margiotta, adding that a couple more deals are in the works.

She anticipates that tenants in the two-storey building will open this fall. The timelines for McDonald’s is less certain, because the restaurant’s owner will do its own construction.

The site plan approved by council calls for a 5,279-square-foot building with 94 seats and dual drive-through lanes.
