Canadian real estate developer Harden announced on Wednesday plans for the creation of a new shopping centre concept baptized Les Avenues Vaudreuil in the city of Vaudreuil-Dorion, Quebec.

Les Avenues Vaudreuil will span 1.4 million square feet of retail space consisting of over 225 stores, restaurants and services, to be completed in phases. Avenue Marché which opened in June 2016 is located at the main northerly entrance to the city of Vaudreuil-Dorion. Avenue Loisirs is presently under construction and will officially open in the spring of 2017, while Avenue Mode, currently known as Mega Centre Vaudreuil, is presently being redeveloped with a fresh look, and new retailers, and is scheduled to be completed by summer 2018.

"This is, without a doubt, our largest and most exciting project to date," says Bill Harden, president and CEO of Harden, in a news statement "When complete, Les Avenues Vaudreuil will be an impressive destination. Customers will find everything they need and desire from a diverse lifestyle shopping destination offering new entertainment experiences."
The development of Les Avenues Vaudreuil is the first of its kind in Western Québec (from the Greater Montreal area to Eastern Ontario) and represents significant growth potential and opportunity for Vaudreuil-Dorion and beyond. The centre is expected to create 2,400 full and part time jobs and an investment of $475 million in the local economy.
Vaudreuil-Dorion has enjoyed one of the fastest-growing residential and commercial booms in Quebec in recent years. The population for the area has grown 67 per cent over the past 10 years.
"An investment of the scale announced by Harden in our community is excellent news for Vaudreuil-Dorion. The community will benefit from the visibility this new shopping destination will create, making Vaudreuil-Dorion, a better place to live, shop and dine," says Mayor Guy Pilon, at the press conference this morning, in a news statement. "A project of this magnitude will also contribute to create jobs, an element of interest for our residents and for families looking to settle in the area."
Harden is a family-owned real estate development company operating shopping centres in numerous communities in the provinces of Quebec and Ontario. It was established in 1985.
