The Food District: Square One’s Newest Foodie DestinationWritten by Eric Skicki Friday, April 5th, 2019
Yesterday was the grand unveiling of the much anticipated Food District in Square One. A new 34,000 sq ft food destination to all the foodies out there.
Square One is currently the third largest mall in Canada, in terms of square footage. As the mall topped a billion dollar in sales, it unveiled a luxury wing with high-end department giant Holt Renfrew and announced a redevelopment that will cost around $580 million.
Part of the redevelopment would include expanding the north wing ( the former Target area) moving the Chapters on Rathburn Rd into the mall and adding The Rec Room, an entertainment complex by Cineplex that will sprawl over 44,000 square feet and offer two full floors of food and activities. It will host many restaurants, amongst them Three10.
The west wing has opened in November with UNIQLO and has reserved 34,000 sq ft for the Food District that will offer a wide array of food hot spots. It will also offer cooking classes, tastings, dinner parties, book signings, and other special events, making Square One a popular destination for all. Some of the restaurants that are calling the Food District home are:
