With development well underway to accommodate one future tenant, documents recently publicly published online show that plans continue to further develop a West End property long associated with retail in the city.
According to an application submitted to Brandon Area Planning by Winnipeg-based McGowan Russell Group on behalf of the property owner, construction of a new building on a pad site on the property is proposed that would be home to a specialized oil change business. No specific oil change business could be confirmed as of the time of this posting.
Included in the submitted documents is a proposal for establishment of up to five standalone pad sites facing Victoria Avenue and 34th Street which could be used to construct buildings for business types such as convenience stores, medical offices or sit down restaurants.
Last month it was learned that Downtown dental practice Princess Dental was in the process of renovating a 6500 square foot space at the Southeast corner of what had previously been occupied by a Zellers department store in the existing building on the property. As learned late last year, future plans include further renovation of the former Zellers space to accommodate future tenants with the recently submitted documents showing the potential for the space to be divided into as many as ten different units including Princess Dental’s future location. A conceptual image shows potential businesses in that space such as those in the fields of fitness, financial, cafe/restaurant or other forms of retail. The recently submitted proposal also suggests a storage facility as potential use of the space.
The most recent plans for WestVic were first reported by the Brandon Sun on Monday morning.
Long-time West end grocer Sobeys occupies 34,611 square feet at the Northwest portion of the property.
When fully developed as proposed it is said that the property located at 3409 Victoria Avenue would potentially be home to nearly 150,000 square feet of retail space including current and future tenants.
