Construction has begun on the new McArthurGlen Designer Outlet at the Vancouver Airport.

The 35,000 square-metre luxury, designer and lifestyle retail outlet centre is on the northeast corner of Sea Island near the Templeton Canada Line station.

“Vancouver’s Sea Island is an emerging aerotropolis,” said John Kasarda, a business professor at the University of North Carolina’s Kenan-Flager Business School, told Business in Vancouver in 2012.

The Vancouver Airport Authority expects that the outlet mall will add an additional 1,000 jobs to the 23,600 already in place at YVR.
