While the City of Langford hasn’t approved any building permits yet, the list of proposed tenants for Belmont Market continues to grow.
Sitings, a Vancouver-based firm specializing in retail tenant representation, project leasing and retail project management, recently released a list of tenants slated to join anchor tenant Thrifty Foods in the proposed development on the site of the former Belmont Secondary School.
The proposed tenants for the project at the corner of Jacklin Road and Jenkins Avenue, which is slated to include more than one million square feet of retail space, are Scotiabank, Fatburger, Great Clips, KFC, Westland Insurance, Good Earth and Eye Etiquette. Sitings also indicated more tenants would be announced soon but could not be reached for comment by the Gazette’s press deadline.
Work on the site has been ongoing for some time but is not directly linked to the Belmont Market development. The property’s owner, Sobeys Inc., is responsible for constructing a new municipal road that will run through the site from Jacklin Road near the Sooke School District’s office and will loosely follow the Galloping Goose Trail to connect with Jenkins Avenue. The improvements to the area were required by Langford during the rezoning process. Sobeys applied for a development permit last spring but the City confirmed Monday no building permits have been issued for the proposed development.
