Richmond Centre’s new Dining Terrace opens Nov. 1

Richmond Centre will be unveiling its new $30 million Dining Terrace next Thursday at 11 a.m., a 44,000-square-foot eating area that’s been 15 months in the making.

Richmond Centre marketing director Leslie Matheson said The Dining Terrace will feature 18 food retailers, up from the previous 15, and offers more seating, hand washing basins in the midst of the eating area, bigger washrooms—including a family room and a nursing room—and a complete recycling area for plastics and organic waste.

Matheson said the new facility isn’t a food fair at all, but will give the impression to visitors, through its consistent design theme, of being in a single restaurant with 18 different sections.

While the north section of the previous food court has been closed since January, the south side eateries have remained open.

But come Thursday, all the remaining food retailers on the south will be moved upstairs to join the north side retailers. In the place of those old food court locations will be a total of seven new non-food retailers.
