Hazeldean Mall is a shopping centre located in the Kanata district of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. It is located at the intersection of Eagleson Road and Hazeldean Road, where Hazeldean Road turns into Robertson Road. It was the first enclosed shopping centre constructed in Kanata. The development of the mall was approved shortly before the incorporation of the (then) City of Kanata, and its approval lead to a legal battle between the constituent parts of the new municipality over the appropriate location of what would at that time be the new city's main commercial hub.HistoryThe site of the mall was zoned for commercial uses in 1962 at the time that the surrounding community of Glen Cairn was planned. The "Glen Cairn Shopping Centre" proposal was approved in 1978 by Goulbourn Township, only months before Glen Cairn ceased to be part of Goulbourn and was amalgamated with March Township and parts of Nepean Township into the new City of Kanata. March Township Council initiated legal action, ultimately unsuccessful, to significantly reduce the size of the Glen Cairn Shopping Centre development on the grounds that it would adversely affect the market potential for March's own Kanata Town Centre development proposal. March Township officials hoped that the Town Centre, located closer to the geographic centre of the new municipality than the Hazeldean Mall, would spur development of a new retail and office core for Kanata. The competing Town Centre project eventually obtained final approvals in 1980, after the Hazeldean Mall had opened.
