UPDATE: The video has since been removed from Vimeo.
A virtual view of a new upscale shopping development in Winnipeg’s south end has recently hit the Internet.
Seasons of Tuxedo will be a unique 1.5-million-square-foot commercial development led by developer Fairweather Properties and anchored by IKEA.
The video delves into the mall’s large-scale property, located to the west of Kenaston Boulevard at the corner of Sterling Lyon Parkway. The shopping complex is slated to open in 2014 or 2015, roughly two years later than the planned 350,000-square-foot IKEA store, which is expected to open in the fall/late 2012.
Retailers for Seasons of Tuxedo have only been rumoured to date, but the development is expected to attract unique brands to the city, some of which have never opened a store in Canada. The mall is being touted as being very pedestrian-friendly, with walkways, pedestrian bridges and streets dedicated solely to foot traffic.
