Located on a 50-acre site in the west end of Ottawa, Tanger Outlets Kanata is a nine-building development of 80 stores totaling 337,000 square feet in retail floor space. It is designed in the “racetrack” style, with a primary access road and parking surrounding a pedestrian-friendly central core of buildings. Customer access to each retail space is from the outside.
The buildings are all single-story and are connected by canopies, with a combination of external insulation and finishing systems (EIFS), masonry, and preformed metal panel finishes forming the exterior walls. Extensive exterior lighting and landscaping provide an interesting and relaxing retail environment for clientele.
PCL played an integral role in assisting and coordinating with other parties on the site—tenant contractors, utilities, site services, and paving contractor. This project was completed under an extremely tight schedule, in time for the grand opening.
