What is Happening at Sherwood Village?

Dec 3, 2021

Mississauga’s Sheridan Mall, one of the oldest in the city, is taking on a new name and new look. Now called Sherwood Village which is located in the heart of the Sherwood Forest area, the new owner, Dunpar Developments, has plans to re-energize the entire area with a master-planned mixed-use community.

Sheridan Mall was built in 1969 and is one of the malls to be part of the “Reimagining the Mall” project launched two years ago with the objective of maintaining and modernizing the mall and introducing some residential on the site.

Season's Greetings From Dunpar
“We are currently negotiating with the city on the details of the masterplan and working with them to identify the various components that will make up the new community,” says Harpreet Bassi, Vice President of Finance for Dunpar. “ We anticipate that we will have more information about the masterplan to share in the near future.”

The company’s intention is to concentrate on investing in the existing bones of the mall, upgrading the exterior and interior and bringing in several new tenants.

Dunpar has already begun to bring change to the mall with an elegant, new stone entrance gate showcasing the Sherwood Village name that faces onto Erin Mills Parkway. They are working on renovating the drive up to the mall entrance with new medians and landscaping to bring the environment into the 21st century. Work is also taking place on upgrading the exterior and interior of the mall redoing the skylights and painting the floor. The skylights bring considerable natural light into the mall which will also see extensive landscaping creating the impression of bringing the outdoors to the inside space.

“We are hoping to have most of this cosmetic work on the mall completed by spring 2022,” says Bassi. “We have already received a number of enquiries from several national tenants that want to be a part of Sherwood Village and hope to have some announcements once the work is completed”.

To help members of the community have a better sense of the plans for this new master plan, Dunpar will be creating an exhibit that will go into the mall in next few months that will show in more detail what is planned for Sherwood Village. Residents of the community are invited to visit the mall and see first hand the future plans for the mall.
