Eastgate Square Mall to be reimagined as residential & retail hub

Hamilton’s Eastgate Square is in line to get a major makeover.

Private investment firm Harrison Equity Partners Ltd is partnering with Retail Ventures CND Inc. to turn the 45-acre East Hamilton mall’s site into a “revitalized retail destination and vibrant residential community,” according to a release from Harrison Equity Partners on Tuesday.

“The first new community of its kind in Hamilton, this integrated development will tie in with existing and planned transportation infrastructure to convert the 45-acre Eastgate Square site into an accessible and affordable destination,” reads the release.

Eastgate Square is one of the East Hamilton and Stoney Creek’s largest and most established retail areas, and the forthcoming redevelopment and redesign proposal promises to “maintain its market leading position” while adding an array of new shops and services with a focus on healthcare, pet care, and wellness.

On top of the retail infrastructure, the redevelopment also promises numerous varied options for housing, capitalizing on Eastgate Square’s proximity to a number of public transit options including the Centennial GO Station, the current Eastgate Square HSR Terminal, and the forthcoming Hamilton LRT.

“We are very pleased to be leading the redevelopment of Eastgate Square,” says Mark H. Newman, CEO and Founder of Harrison Equity Partners. “We believe that with a careful appreciation of the local community’s needs we can make Eastgate Square the kind of special place where people will come to live, work, shop and be together.”
