As with everything else in Blatchford, there will be nothing ordinary about the shops and services that add to the lifestyle of the neighbourhood. Careful thought will be put into choosing like-minded businesses and creating opportunities for shops and services to add more life in Blatchford.
Blatchford will provide mixed-use development opportunities in the Town Centre and throughout the community, including the development of approximately 1 to 2 million square feet of office space and 400,000 square feet of retail space. When fully developed, Blatchford will create between 10,000 and 12,000 jobs right in the community.
Retail won’t be limited to just the Town Centre. In order to keep the community walkable, mixed-use buildings in residential areas will have small-scale retail opportunities like cafés and boutiques. And to make sure the neighbourhood stays pedestrian friendly for its 30,000 residents, no drive-thrus will be allowed.
