Tottenham Mall renovations will be completed soon, says owner

The owner of the Tottenham Mall says the massive renovation project that started last year will be completed soon.

Property owner Justin Piersanti said the work will wrap up at the end of June or by mid-July.

The reno didn’t move as fast as he had hoped.

“It’s an old building, so when you start to substantially dig into it, you find unexpected or unforeseen things you need to deal with, and it causes delays,” he wrote.

Piersanti said the site is being transformed into a “hybrid mall/plaza,” with the LCBO, Pet Valu, the Beer Store and Pharmasave facing the street.

He said CIBC is also staying, and Pharmasave will also have a doctor’s office.

The washroom was upgraded and is accessible, and doors will be accessible once the entrances are completed, he added.

The north/south hallway was removed but the east/west one will remain.

Piersanti declined to say how much money has been spent on the renovations.

The project started early last summer after Vince’s Market announced it was moving into the old grocery store space.

The Pam Kirkpatrick branch of the New Tecumseth Public Library will leave the mall at the end of its lease this year.

The library will be relocated to a new building that has yet to be constructed at the Tottenham Community and Fitness Centre.
