Polo Park Redevelopment

Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada


Polo Park Shopping Centre, Manitoba’s premier mall, is always looking to enhance their retail offering. When 114,000 square feet became available to repurpose the mall’s owners, the Cadillac Fairview Corporation, knew they could do something special.

With the goal of maintaining the mall’s high status, a Winnipeg-based design and construction team which included SMS Engineering was assembled to overcome the unique challenges posed by working on a 60-year old, active shopping complex.

The $50 million redevelopment of Polo Park Shopping Centre transformed the former Zellers retail space into new, skylit concourses and over 30 new retail tenants. The spectacular result was a technically complex solution addressing the needs of the retail environment, achieved on-time and on-budget.
