Westpark Centre North is getting a few additions.
Once construction is complete, the city has confirmed Burger King, Anytime Fitness, Montessori Daycare, Taste of Mediterranean and Maximum Nutrition will be moving in.
Economic development officer for Fort Saskatchewan, Mike Erickson, told MIX 107 there are many factors that affect the attractiveness of the area for new tenants. Lease rates, visibility, access, pedestrian traffic, vehicle traffic and proximity to similar tenants or competitors all play a large role in bringing in more business.
The fact it’s a relatively new area may also be an appeal.
"Any services are beneficial to the residents that live nearby and residents throughout the city," he said.
Construction should be completed in the spring, but the city does not yet have an exact time-frame.
