Outlet Collection Winnipeg Opens to Huge Crowds [Photos/Floor Plan/Store List]

Ivanhoé Cambridge has officially opened its Outlet Collection Winnipeg outlet centre, and thousands lined up for the opening on Wednesday, May 3. 

Outlet Collection Winnipeg features more than 400,000 square feet of retail space and 570,000 square feet of gross leasable area, with space for about 100 retailers. The centre, located at 555 Sterling Lyon Parkway, features six anchors: Saks OFF 5TH, Old Navy, F21 Red by Forever 21, DSW Designer Shoe Warehouse, Nike and Winners. F21 Red and Winners will open in September. 

The property is managed by Ivanhoé Cambridge and is jointly owned by Ivanhoé Cambridge, Forster Projects and Harvard Developments. The project broke ground on September 25 of 2015, and it cost over $200 million to build. 

About 1,300 full and part-time retail jobs have been created with its construction, and a further 400 construction-related jobs were created for its development.

Outlet Collection Winnipeg boasts some unique sustainability features. It’s LEED® pre-certified, and was designed to be over 20% more energy efficient than the stringent requirements of the Manitoba Energy Code for Buildings. Unique roofing material will reduce the heat island effect, and water-efficient fixtures were installed throughout the centre. Low-emission CO2 materials were selected for the flooring, paint and composite wood products used. And for cyclists, there are 80 bike parking spaces. 

For those arriving by car, the centre features about 2,300 parking spaces. 

The centre is the only dedicated outlet mall in Manitoba, and is also the first US-styled suburban outlet shopping centre in Western Canada. Currently, Vancouver’s McArthurGlen Designer Outlets is the only other ‘pure’ outlet centre in Western Canada, and it differs from the Winnipeg property in primarily two ways — McArthurGlen lacks larger anchor stores, and it also features upscale architecture that is unlike any other outlet malls. Western Canada is also home to Calgary’s CrossIron Mills and South Delta’s Tsawwassen Mills, though these are considered to be ‘hybrid’ outlet centres with a mix of full-price and off-price retailers.
