A Dynamic Urban District in the heart of Bonnie Doon
Connect Bonnie Doon is an engagement process that will help shape the long-term future of the Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre site. It gives a voice to the area residents, tenants and citizens of Edmonton as we take steps to revitalize and refocus this community retail and commercial resource.
To keep pace with the tremendous growth of Edmonton and the ever-changing needs of its residents, Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre will evolve to strengthen and enhance retail commercial services, introducing residential uses and community amenities. The Valley Line LRT station at Bonnie Doon reinforces this evolution by establishing a major public transit corridor at its doorstep, connecting the downtown and surrounding communities to the Centre.
Connect Bonnie Doon
The Bonnie Doon Shopping Centre has been an important retail and commercial resource to the Bonnie Doon neighbourhood and surrounding community since 1958. The long-term evolution of Bonnie Doon will be rooted in a sustainable and integrated development focus that will see the creation of a vibrant urban district that is connected to improved public transit and will appeal to all ages.
The plan will provide the community with a broad range of shopping, entertainment and needed commercial services as well as a variety of housing option for singles, growing families and seniors.
Connect Bonnie Doon is poised to embrace a future that celebrates diversity, technological change and community building. We invite and welcome you to Connect Bonnie Doon.
