A four-building shopping complex is rising on the site of the former Nethercott Chevrolet property on the northeast corner of Rymal and Upper James.

Shoppers Drug Mart will occupy the building with the largest footprint, situated closest to the intersection.

Shoppers will be leaving its current digs at the South Hamilton Square plaza across the street for a new home at the corner, specifically 1599 Upper James.

A spokeswoman says the move will happen this fall.

According to the building permit, the new Shoppers will be 1,654 square metres (17,800 sq. ft.) in size and cost about $1.5 million.

A spokeswoman from legal firm WeirFoulds’ commercial real estate department, which is handling the rest of the development, said the company’s clients are not ready to reveal the identity of the other businesses.

The site plan includes a 906-square-metre (9,754 sq. ft.) single-storey building and a two-storey building of about 1,875 square metres (20,200 sq. ft.) in size. Both buildings incorporate restaurant patios, according to the site plan submitted to the city.

A bank will be the tenant of the 328-square-metre (3,535 sq. ft.) fourth building.

The site plan calls for 239 parking spaces in the complex.
