Aura Mall Toronto

Toronto's worst mall Shops at Aura suing developer

Late last year, we asked: "Is The Shops at Aura Toronto's worst mall?" The subterranean shopping centre is usually devoid of foot traffic and is filled with a slew of unoccupied storefronts.

Now, according to a Toronto Star report, the condo corporation is suing developer Canderel Residential and The Residences of College Park IV.

As the Star notes, among other the allegations that have yet to proven in court, the nearly $32 million lawsuit alleges that the developers "misrepresented" the space.

Retail condo owners thought they were buying into a "first class" shopping mall that'd eventually be connected to the PATH. But thus far, for instance, there are no concrete plans to the Shops at Aura to Toronto's underground pedestrian walkway.

The Star details how in the food court, nine out of the 12 possible kiosks remain empty. And that's not surprising considering when we visited, we described the place as a ghost town.
