With key tenants in place at the University of New Brunswick’s Corbett Centre property, the company developing the site is working to continue to expand its list of retailers.

Trinity Development Group is the shopping mall development firm partnering with UNB to develop land on Regent Street and Knowledge Park Drive.

With Home Depot, a Michael’s arts and crafts supply store, Petcetera, Dollarama and Winners in place and open for business – along with two new eateries – the smaller retail components of the centre are starting to fill in.

Corbett Centre project manager Stewart Watson of Trinity Development Group told city officials, planning advisory committee members and city councillors recently that the centre is about one-third complete, but negotiations are ongoing to sign up new tenants.

Some retailers who are in talks with the developers include a furniture rental business, a beauty salon, a store specializing in wicker products and a weight loss and nutrition centre.

Scott Fash with Terrain Group, the engineering and planning firm developing the buildings, said one of the unique features of the Corbett Centre property is its inward design.

All of the stores have their front entrances facing the central parking lot and the backs or sides of their buildings facing Regent Street and Knowledge Park Drive.

Fash said the shopping centre was designed with high-end building materials and more landscaping within the shopping centre than is typical of a lot of similar centres in Eastern Canada.

“It’s come together quite well. It’s still early on in the process, but again, all in all, it’s coming along well,” Fash said.
