The Outlet Collection Winnipeg is a first-to-market retail experience, located in one of the city’s most affluent areas, offering 400,000 square feet of premier retailers.
The single level building, developed on a former railyard operations site, features a neutral design palette incorporating warm wood accents, glasspanel frontage, skylights, industrial styled windows, vaulted open ceilings, and exposed pipes and brickwork.
Entrances are complemented by indigenous trees, shrubbery, prairie grasses and native Tyndall stone slabs, to create linear paths connecting the center and parking areas. A comprehensive wayfinding and navigation system composed of environmental graphics, signage and digital podiums, allow visitors to easily locate their desired destination.
The unique collection of retailers includes Saks Off Fifth, Michael Kors, Kate Spade, Lacoste, Polo Ralph Lauren and Lululemon among others, interspersed with living room inspired communal areas with fireplaces, indoor gardens and a variety of seating and lounge spaces.
