The owners of WestVic Common are asking the city to start construction on phase one of the shopping centre's redevelopment, which include the possibility of an automotive service station or self-storage facility.
According to documents submitted to the city by McGowan Russell Group, the automotive service station would be built on one of five future pad sites and the storage facility would be built in the existing mall building. A numbered company, 6825738 Manitoba Ltd. is listed as the property owner.
The letter of intent for the property says the developer also intends to add up to five stand-alone pad sites fronting on Victoria Avenue and 34th Street. Possible uses for the pad buildings include convenience stores, medial offices or restaurants.
"The Proposed Use will redefine WestVic Common as a community hub by renovating in phases the existing CRU & Existing Sobeys, addition of new custom pad buildings, new asphalt topcoat, new parking lot lighting, new landscaping, enhanced life safety and pedestrian & traffic controls," the application reads.
"The Proposed Use will provide modern retail facilities which will be safely accessed, and furthermore, enhance retail services available to the surrounding area."
More to come.
