Ivanhoé Cambridge’s Tsawwassen Mills hybrid outlet centre opened about a month ago, and we profiled the property in an article on Retail Insider. Last week, photographer Klaus Johansson toured Tsawwassen Mills, and gave us permission to post his beautiful photos of the South Delta retail centre.
The 1.2 million square foot hybrid outlet centre features 16 anchors and 180 retailers, 50% of which are ‘pure outlet’ stores. The remaining retailers are considered ‘full-price’.
Construction began on the massive Tsawwassen Mills in January of 2014, which is located at Highway 17 and 52nd Street in South Delta -- about 30 minutes north of the Washington State border and less than 5 km from the Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal.
180 retailers have opened in the centre, including 18 that are first-to-market such as: Bass Pro Shops, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, Pro Hockey Life, Saks OFF 5TH, The Outlet by Harry Rosen, Michael Kors Outlet, lululemon athletica outlet, and Browns Outlet (shoes), as well as several others. Thirteen of the mall's 16 anchors are now open.
Tsawwassen Mills features a 1,100-seat food hall, four full-service restaurants, a children’s play area, a sports dome and six public entrances each featuring its own special design features. Several stores offer unique entertainment options, including a skate park in the West 49 retail space, and a themed bowling alley inside of Bass Pro Shops.

According to Ivanhoé Cambridge, more than $600 million went into building Tsawwassen Mills, which now employs about 3,500 full-time and part-time staff. The centre features a 6,000 stall parking lot with 14 electric vehicle charging stations. Other sustainable features include a LEED® certification as mentioned above, based partly on 20% of construction materials being recycled, as well as the planting of 2,000 trees on the property.
