Avalon Mall is the premiere regional shopping centre in St. John's and Newfoundland and Labrador. It’s the largest enclosed shopping mall in the province and will boast approximately 593,000 square feet of GLA upon completion of a three-year redevelopment project. Avalon Mall is owned and managed by Crombie REIT (“Crombie”).
Phase 1 of the $112M project began in 2017 with construction of a new parking structure, providing 875 additional parking spaces for shoppers and visitors. Vehicle access to Kenmount Road was redesigned and realigned, and the redesign and phased renovation of the centre's interior common areas began with contemporary porcelain tile and acoustic ceiling tiles.
Phase 2 includes improvements to entrances and the exterior façade. Interior upgrades continue on the main level and in centre court, corridors, and atriums with upgrades to lighting, ceiling, and tile treatments. New washroom facilities were completed near the bottom of the food court escalators in 2019. The food court has been expanded with modern finishes, additional seating and furniture, and sorting stations that allow the mall to divert organic waste to an on-site composter.
