Very clean, safe and an abundance of high end clothing, technology, jewelry and food shops and boutiques. Three levels of excitement, as there is something for everyone.

This mall is right beside the Byward Market. It consumes two floors, and has pretty much all the standard retailers you'd expect. It is laid out well, and is very clean. It was not too crowded on a weekday afternoon.

Very nice mall; but expensive stores inside. Bring your credit cards because I don't think there is much in here that you can buy with your little bit of cash. However, we did purchase some hot sauce from Pepper Palace! Pretty much every brand name...More
