Yorkdale's Expansion

Didn't it feel like Yorkdale just finished a big expansion? I guess they're not done yet. Yorkdale just announced that they will be doing a $220 million dollar expansion adding 145,000 square ft of new retail space. Expansion overview:

• 40 new retails! 
(which they referred to as "first to market", I really want to know which retail. I already heard that they will be getting J.Crew.)
• new third level food court, doubling the seating capacity
• new restaurants
• over 800 new underground parking spaces

Seeing how being green is so popular, Yorkdale will be including that into their expansion. The new food court will reduce waste by 85% with resusable plates and cutlery. Also they will be adding a 65,000 square foot green roof to reduce atmospheric heating.

Construction has already begun and will be expected to finish in late 2012. I'm really looking forward to seeing it when it's all finish --- Very exciting!! : )
