Sale of Bayside Mall lands pushed back six weeks.

Published on

The closing date on sale of the Bayside Mall lands has been extended.

Seasons Retirement Communities, which is buying the property from the city for $1 million, requested the extension on the closing date from Oct. 15 to Nov. 29.

The delay is needed because the company hasn’t yet reached agreement with Lambton County on a lease for mall space used by government services.

Seasons has said it plans to invest $40 million in downtown commercial and residential development, including a 12-storey retirement home on the mall site.

It also plans to demolish part of the building, open up a pedestrian walkway on Lochiel Street, and create new commercial and retail space.
