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.
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.
