Erin Mills Town Centre in Mississauga is getting a $100-million makeover, its first major renovation since it opened in 1989.

The mall, which is anchored by Hudson’s Bay and Sears, will get a more sleek, contemporary design including an expansive centre court with an infinity pool and a new two-storey food court.

Vice-president Nance MacDonald said in a release on Thursday the mall collected feedback from shoppers, and “it was clear they were not looking for ‘bigger’ but a ‘better’ shopping experience.

“We were inspired by their comments and plan to deliver beyond their expectations,” she said.

Construction will begin this summer. The new food court should be completed in the fall of 2014 and the rest should be done in the summer of 2015.

Erin Mills is the fourth GTA mall to be undergoing redevelopment.

Last month, Vaughan Mills broke ground on its $87-million redevelopment that will add an extra 200,000 square feet of retail space.

In November, Yorkdale Shopping Centre unveiled its $220-million expansion that will include 27 new stores and a new food court.

And in January, Sherway Gardens in Etobicoke began its $350-million facelift, which when finished will include new stores, a new second-level  food court and a new three-level parkade.
