Splendid China Mall (Traditional Chinese: 錦繡中華; Simplified Chinese: 锦绣中华) is a 90,000 square feet Chinese-themed ethnic shopping centre located at the southeast corner of Redlea Avenue and Steeles Avenue in the former Toronto municipality of Scarborough, Ontario, Canada. The current building was built from the shell of the former Canadian Tire store formerly operating at the location. Spendid China Development Inc is responsible for turning the former Canadian Tire building, into a 2-storey ethnic indoor shopping mall in the well known Kennedy Road and Steeles Avenue area of Scarborough and Markham, Ontario, despite its "tower" name. Due to its proximity to the popular Asian-oriented Pacific Mall and Market Village plus its own initial success, Phase II of Splendid China Mall calls for a 3-storey addition on the existing parking lot and a four-level underground parking facility. When Phase II is completed, the development will have a total gross floor area of 31,900 square metre (343,400 square feet) of retail, food court, restaurant and banquet hall. Splendid China Mall first opened its doors for business on February 17, 2007. The mini-mall also features a food court and a weekly Saturday night "fair" located at the parking lot, with Chinese food for sale.
Chinese language signs
Scarborough's local sign bylaws limit the size a business may post signs in one singular language. The signs the centre currently has (in Chinese characters) taken up the permitted total wall acreage, so permission had to be sought to add an English sign.
