Broadmead Village wraps up facelift

Broadmead Village is throwing a public celebration on Saturday (Nov. 23) to cap an $8.2 million, year-long renovation.

Broadmead Village is throwing a public celebration on Saturday (Nov. 23) to cap an $8.2 million, year-long renovation.

In an effort to update its image in a highly competitive shopping centre market, the dated, 20-year-old centre has updated its storefronts and building facades, increased store space and updated its breezeway pedestrian area.

It now features a fountain, and covered and open outdoor seating.

“Bringing people together at Broadmead Village was one of the main objectives of the renovation, so this seems like a perfect way to mark the completion of the project,” says Alison Miles Cork, senior asset manager with Grosvenor Americas, owner of Broadmead Villge. “We’re excited to host this event and welcome the community.”

Tomorrow from noon to 4 p.m., the centre will host entertainers, magicians, jugglers, including the Taiko Drummers and Island Hoppers jump rope team.

Musical acts include the O’Brien Family, the Maureen Washington Quintet and the Soul Shakers.
