Food District Square One Mall Expansion
Square One Shopping Centre is the famous mall which forms the core focal point of Downtown Mississauga and will now be home to the new Food District. Over the past several years, the mall has undergone extensive renovations which have brought in a new luxury wing, a revamped northern side and now the western wing of the mall is being redone. The reason for these investments is to bring fresh energy to the Square One area as more and more people continue to call Square One condos their home. Catering to a younger demographic allows for further diversity and helps form Square One into a destination. The western wing expansion is already bringing the exciting Rec Room facility which will offer fun games and an arcade with a more adult atmosphere. This is all just one component of the Mississauga Downtown 21 plan. The latest announcement for the western expansion is the new Food District in Square One. The Food District will offer an expansive space of over 34,000 square feet for patrons to attend events, socialize with friends and explore a huge diversity of culinary experiences. The Food District follows suit of a similar venture in Toronto known as the Assembly Chef’s Hall. As the Downtown Mississauga core continues to grow, the Food District, which is expected to open in 2019 will add another amenity that local residents can enjoy. This huge push towards a more pedestrian friendly setting and unique, never before seen attractions for the area is really going to transform Square One into the proper downtown core we’ve all been waiting for.
