WHITE OAKS

 


 

 

The White Oaks Neighbourhood

White Oaks is a neighbourhood of mostly starter type homes.  It is close to shopping and services, has good bus routes and is close to the highway.  You will find a lot of smaller, well maintained homes that can be purchased at prices that are below the city average.  There are number of town house and high and low rise condo developments as well as rentals.  It is also an area with a number of well situated parks that create green space corridors.

 

White Oaks Mall

The property on which the mall is now located was originally occupied by a small outdoor plaza, built in 1962. It featured a Sayvette department store and a Loblaws grocery store.  In 1972, the plaza was completely rebuilt to make way for expansion. It became a fully enclosed shopping centre in early 1973, featuring a Woolco department store and about 40 other tenants. The main entrance to the mall included artistic steel sculptures and a massive arch-like gateway, all of which still exist today.

The mall expanded again in 1976, with a Simpson’s department store replacing the Sayvette (now The Bay). By the late 1970s and into the 1980s, the area surrounding the mall began to develop. New highrise apartments and homes were constructed. Many new commercial establishments located near the mall as well.  White Oaks was enlarged once again in 1985 and 1988, with an additional 80 new stores and a food court added. This made the mall one of the largest shopping centres in Southwestern Ontario.  In the mid 1990’s, lack of parking became such a problem that a nearby office building was demolished to allow for more spaces. In 2005, the mall was sold to the CPP Investment Board and Osmington Inc.

There are over 175 stores and services in White Oaks Mall.
