Place Sainte-Foy is an upscale shopping mall is located in Quebec City (former city of Sainte-Foy). It is owned by Ivanhoe Cambridge.

The anchors are Simons, Signature Maurice Tanguay, and Metro. The mall has 135 stores covering 590,000 square feet (54,800 square metres) [1] including the first Apple Store in the Capitale-Nationale . The mall is situated next to Université Laval and to the shopping malls Laurier Québec and Place de la Cité.

Place Sainte-Foy opened in phases in late 1958 and early 1959 and was developed by Ivanhoe Corporation on a site formally anchored by just a Steinberg supermarket.[2] The mall's most prominent past anchors are Steinberg (1958–92), Miracle Mart/M (1963–92), Eaton (1975–99), Holt Renfrew (1965-2015) and Les Ailes de la Mode (1997-2015). Although it wasn't there when the mall inaugurated, the Simons store has been in the mall since 1961, making it one of the longest dating anchor stores in the province of Quebec.

As a result of Ivanhoe Cambridge's selling of Mail Champlain to Cominar Real Estate Investment Trust in October 2014, Place Sainte-Foy is now the only shopping mall originally built by the former Ivanhoe that is still managed by Ivanhoe Cambridge. It is also one of Ivanhoe Cambridge's oldest shopping centres altogether among the company's current properties. During the 2000s and early 2010s, Place Sainte-Foy was owned in equal proportions by Ivanhoe Cambridge and Commerzbank AG (Commerz Real) of Germany.[3] However, Ivanhoe Cambridge reacquired Commerbanz's stake of Place Sainte-Foy in 2012 to become wholly owner of the mall again.[4]

On October 2010, Place Sainte-Foy completed a 2 years renovations which added an underground parking to the mall and increased the size of the Simons store.[2]

The most recent investment project was announced in 2016, when the mall owners announced a $60 million project to build a state-of-the-art parking facility in the rear of the mall, adjoining Hochelaga Boulevard. The structure will include four stories above ground and one other underground level, totaling 3000 parking spaces.[5]
