Over 80 per cent of the retail space at the redeveloped Lansdowne Park has been leased, the organization behind the redevelopment.

The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group says that over 40 per cent of those retailers and restaurants will have their only Ottawa locations at Lansdowne.
The retail mix “affirms our shared vision with the City of Ottawa for transforming Lansdowne into a vibrant mixed-use destination,” said Roger Greenberg, chair of OSEG, in a statement.
Among the new-to-Ottawa chains are B.C.-based Local Lounge and Grill and Toronto-based South St. Burger Company, which is part of the same company as New York Fries.
They will join previously announced tenants such as U.S. organic grocery giant Whole Foods Market, Vancouver-based JOEY Restaurants and Toronto’sSporting Life.
Last week the company announced that a 10-screen Cineplex facility would be opening to fulfill the space that had been planned for a movie theatre.
The new retail space will join with new NASL soccer and CFL football teams, both of which are set to begin play at a redesigned stadium later this year.
