Yep! It was approved at council last week and I imagine it'll be a very quick build.

Lucky bastards. Milestone's is one of my favourite premium restaurant chains. Better in my opinion than Moxie's which we have here in Moncton (and Halifax).

I believe this will be their first location in Atlantic Canada. :tup:

This is how rumours start. I doubt there is any validity to it.

Last year the rumoured site was Gander.

Expect Dannyville will get it first, rumour has it's already been negotiated, and a Target too :)

If anyone could make it happen it would be Danny.

Lots of activity happening at the Field Power Centre. Was down on Hebron Way today and they have started putting up steel for the new Canadian Tire Store. The foundation is also laid for the Milestones Restaurant and the frame is going up for what I think is another Starbucks (but not confirmed) next to Harvey's. Footings gave also been laid for another office building from the Crosbie Group up near the west end of the Field Power Centre.

Was out for a Sunday drive yesterday and on the way back into town I noticed that work is going full speed ahead on the proposed new Sobey's supermarket in Paradise on the corner of Topsail Road and McNamara Drive. Construction fences are up all around the site and heavy equipment is all over digging and plowing. I suspect you will see Dominion coming to Paradise next.

Arrakis Jun 9, 2014 7:14 PM

Steel is going up quickly for the new Canadian Tire on Hebron Way.

I think this structure is which going up next door to Harvey's Restaurant is another Starbucks. I think it's time to put one in west end now, like in Mount Pearl or thereabouts.

I have heard that Sephora isn't opening a location at the Avalon Mall anymore.

Arrakis Jul 14, 2014 1:24 PM

What's Sephora, never heard of it before. Clothing store?

It's a make-up store. Not my thing (obviously :P) but my girlfriend is upset. There isn't much free space in the mall anyway, I would have been surprised if it actually found a location. I think there's one empty space up for lease, which is large enough for a clothing store, and then there's the old Pasta Plus location which is on it's way to becoming a Starbucks.

I actually just realized that this is my thread to upkeep, oops! I have to go to work this afternoon to do some silly instrumentation, I should have downtime between runs to give an update to the front page :)

Sephora stores can be quite large and can occupy the footprint of a typical clothing store. There's a Sephora at Champlain Place in Moncton. There's one at HSC in Halifax too, and I believe they're opening a second one at MicMac Mall in Dartmouth too.

Marty_Mcfly Jul 20, 2014 3:58 PM

But what do you do with all that makeup? :haha:

Arrakis Jul 20, 2014 9:26 PM

I noticed a construction trailer set up outside the baine Johnston bldg on kenmount rd. Anyone hear about anything on the go there. The former Dooleys is quite the large space.

Marty_Mcfly Jul 20, 2014 10:27 PM

It's possible, though there are still lease signs up at the location. For right now it just seems to be mall overflow (Urban Planet set up shop there during their renovation).

SpongeG Jul 20, 2014 10:36 PM

sephora sells more than makeup they sell a lot of mens products, colognes etc. lots of hair stuff shampoos, hairdryers, curling irons, brushes etc. hard to find lines like bliss, philosophy. they are owned by LVMH the same people who own louis vuitton etc.
