Access to Oakridge Co-op from the mall ends on Sept. 15th
With construction now complete on the new two-storey professional building, and tenants starting to move in, access to the Calgary Co-op from the Oakridge Mall has been closed off. This is part of Phase 2 of this project, which will see the mall demolished in the new year. The only exit and entrance to the Co-op will be on the south side of the building.
Construction on the new food store is expected to begin in 2023 and the overall project is expected to be completed in 2026.
Construction on this project began on March 22nd, 2021. The re-development of the Oakridge Co-op will incorporate mixed-use retail, residential and office spaces, while creating sustainable green initiatives and modernized infrastructure.
According to Darci-Jane McAulay, Communications Advisory for Calgary Co-op, the site is being developed in a staged-approach to minimize disruption to the community. During construction, the food store, gas station, car wash, liquor store, cannabis store, Boston Pizza, A&W and other retail and medical services will remain open
