Massive New Food District Coming to Square One

We all know and love Square One.

And it’s about to gain more traction with bonafide foodies.
The mall’s west expansion development is well underway, with an opening date slated for November.
It kicks off with the arrival of global casual apparel retailer UNIQLO (plus and other soon-to-be announced major retailers). 
In addition, Square One will be home to The Rec Room, a hybrid of dining, live entertainment and amusement gaming experiences.
And now an elevated experience is on tap for foodie tourists and locals alike.
The Food District is opening in spring 2019 and it’ll have a focus on offering local, handmade and high-quality foods in a setting that embraces both new- and old-world food emporiums. 
With more than 34,000 sq. ft., the Food District will offer space to meet, explore and share the love of food through tastings, cooking classes, dinner parties, book signings and other special events.
“In the coming months, we will reveal more details surrounding the west expansion,” said Square One director and general manager Greg Taylor. 
“Square One continues to be a premier location for world- class retailers and for the discerning consumer. The Food District will provide an inspired, fulfilling and unforgettable experience for food lovers and adventurers in a setting that encourages discovery, community, and culinary indulgence.”

Over the past year, Square One has introduced more than 40 highly coveted new retailers to its stellar roster of brands, and this unprecedented growth is set to continue. 

Square One boasts a sales per-square-foot of $1,082 –  it’s 2.2 million sq. ft. overall – and bills its $580 million redevelopment is “one of the most ambitious projects of its kind in North America.”
