Park Lane (mall)
Park Lane is located on Spring Garden Road in Halifax, which is the busiest pedestrian thoroughfare east of Montreal and is the premier shopping district of Atlantic Canada. Spring Garden Road retailers have some of the highest per-square-foot retail sales in the Atlantic region. Park Lane is close to the Halifax Citadel and is one block away from the Victorian Public Gardens. Within a few blocks radius are seven universities and colleges and three hospitals. The downtown business core is 10 minutes walking distance and it is estimated that close to 50,000 employees come into the downtown core to work every day.
Park Lane houses a Cineplex Cinemas movie theatre (formerly Famous Players & Empire Theatres) with eight screens offering stadium seating in addition to a small food court, Kellys Luggage (North America's oldest luggage and leather goods store), The Body Shop, Telus Mobility, Carlton Cards, The Source, Cleve's Sporting Goods and Olsen Europe are among the mall's key tenants.
Parking is available at a parking garage attached to the shopping centre, with an additional six parking lots within blocks. Many merchants validate parking upon purchase.
Interior decor consists of marble, glass, fountains, skylights and a glass walled interior elevator to office space above the mall.
Park Lane was built in the late 1980s as a new upscale mall in downtown Halifax. The main attraction became the Famous Players movie theatre built in the bottom floor of the mall off the food court. In 2004, the theatre was bought by Empire Theatres and refurbished to include stadium seating. On June 27, 2013, Empire Theatres announced that they will be selling this theatre along with 23 others in Atlantic Canada to Cineplex Entertainment. Empire Theatres closed on October 22, 2013 and reopened on October 25, 2013 as Cineplex Cinemas.
