At some point this massive retail build is going to have to slow down. I am not sure when or how but I suspect a development past, present or future will founder.
It is interesting to note that Fairweather, the development of Seasons of Tuxedo has passed on the work of bringing the next phase of the Sterling Lyon retail project to others. They won't be putting together the factory outlet mall. Did they just think it was a good time to cash out?
The south side of Sterling Lyon continues to fill in but no new big box has been announced and built since last May with Cabela's.
One thing is certain that Winnipeg will see more multi-unit housing go up in many retail developments. A captive audience for those stores is the possible reason. Perhaps one day, we may see residential towers built atop of existing malls like Polo Park.
