Preston Crossing expanding

Work is well underway on the fourth phase of construction at Preston Crossing in Saskatoon, a retail development on U of S land that generates significant scholarship money for university students.

The list of new tenants that are expected to open their doors in December or early 2013 include GAP and Banana Republic outlet stores, The Shoe Company, Chatters, Cora restaurant, Osh Kosh and River City Sports. According to James Cook, manager of business opportunities in Corporate Administration, the Banana Republic and Gap outlet stores, Osh Kosh and Cora will be new to both the province and the city, and the River City Sports and The Shoe Company stores will be the first locations in Saskatoon.

Work on the store exteriors is expected to be done by Oct. 1 with interior finishing to follow, said Cook. Harvard Development owns and operates Preston Crossing in partnership with the U of S.

The fourth phase of Preston Crossing also includes Saskatchewan's first Cabela's, which opened in May, and the current expansion of Walmart. With the completion of phase four, revenue from Preston Crossing will allow the university to commit $1.79 million to student scholarships each year, said Cook.
