The City of Terrace has approved plans by Vancouver-based Loon Properties to renovate currently vacant retail space at the west end of the Skeena Mall.
Involved is one large space for the future home of Mark’s Work Wearhouse and two small spaces for which tenants have yet to be found.
A development permit for the work was granted by city council at its April 25 meeting.
A plan submitted indicates there will be extensive exterior renovations in addition to interior work.
The Mark’s space will be approximately 1,400 square metres and the two smaller spaces will be 650 square metres and 185 square metres, respectively.
“Overall, this development permit application proposes an attractive enhancement and continues to create a contemporary and consistent look and feel with rest of the Skeena Mall. It will enable Mark’s Work Wearhouse to relocate into a larger space and will provide two new commercial units in the City of Terrace in a prime location to support business growth in our community,” read information presented by city planner Tara Irwin to council.
Mark’s is currently in an adjacent strip mall just to the east of the Skeena Mall.
The vacant space at one time was home to a Kmart which was then converted to a Zellers and then the location of Liquidation World.
