The centre will offer the most sought-after luxury, premium and lifestyle fashion brands with year-round savings of up to 70%. At launch this will include brands such as Armani, Hugo Boss and Calvin Klein. It will also feature some iconic Vancouver favourites such as lifestyle concept store Secret Location and Italian style Coffee HouseCafé Artigiano. This will also be the first Lower Mainland location for several brands including Women’s active wear store Lolë and contemporary designer label Ports 1961.
A list of brands that have completed leases to date is below, and several more brands are in the process of completing leasing terms to be ready at opening or shortly after. The centre is expected to be approximately 70% leased at the opening, which compares favourably with the opening of 20 other McArthurGlen Designer outlets across Europe.
“We are very happy with the way leasing has progressed and feel shoppers will be thrilled with the great brands on offer”, said Robert Thurlow, General Manager. “From Coach to Polo Ralph Lauren to Mountain Warehouse, there is really going to be an exciting mix of luxury, premium and lifestyle brands that will appeal to everyone visiting McArthurGlen Vancouver Airport”.
In a unique location (three minutes on the Canada Line from Vancouver International Airport/YVR, 10 minutes from downtown Richmond and 30 minutes from downtown Vancouver), the centre is bringing McArthurGlen’s sophisticated European style to Vancouver, and blending this with a style that reflects the local heritage paying tribute to several well-known Vancouver neighbourhoods. The designer outlet has been designed in an open-air village style, with pedestrian-friendly walkways, tree-lined streets, a dancing fountain, gentle landscaping, a luxury piazza and a variety of façades. Restaurants, cafes and open-air seating areas will complete the leisure experience, while a children’s playground and on-site entertainment will cater for all the family.
Below is a listing of brands signed on for McArthurGlen Vancouver Airport as of May 12th, 2015. Note: Some brands may not yet be completed for opening during the centre’s grand opening event and several more brands are finalising their lease arrangements and are expected as the early summer opening date draws closer.
