City of St. Albert Announces Investment in Riverside Landing

The City of St. Albert is pleased to announce a positive investment decision with Hopewell Development and North Central Co-op, who will be joining Riverside Landing in St. Albert in early 2022.

Together, Hopewell Development and North Central Co-op will bring a 32,000 square foot grocery store, a 6,000 square foot liquor store, a car wash and gas bar. The grocery store will be the first off St. Albert Trail, adding a valued service and making the community more connected and walkable for residents.

“We are excited to kick start a first-class shopping centre and get it up and running sooner than later,” says Colin Peter, Vice President of Retail at Hopewell.

“We look forward to welcoming Hopewell and Co-op to St. Albert,” says Mayor Cathy Heron. “This investment will help us service our growing community and serve as an anchor to residential development in the surrounding area, attracting future retailers and professional services.”

North Central Co-op's CEO, Dean McKim says, “Co-op does business a little differently. Our profits are shared locally with our members and reinvested back into the communities we serve. Investing in St. Albert means more than laying brick and mortar, it makes an investment in the people and community of St. Albert.”

Riverside Landing is a community-based shopping centre located in the southwest portion of St. Albert, with access to Ray Gibbon Drive, connecting people from all over the Edmonton region. Hopewell is accepting leasing enquiries now and construction of the development will take place over the next several years.
