The Neighbourhood of Stoneybrook
Stoneybrook is a largely suburban neighbourhood in London’s north end, composed of larger than average homes and lots. The area encompasses much of the retail heart of the “Masonville” area, including Masonville Place and a number of big box retail malls. The neighbourhood is still expanding to expand to the north with the Uplands development, continuing the character of the community. For many who move into the area, they come because of the larger family homes, the larger lots, good schools, and the close proximity to shopping.
Masonville Place was constructed by the Cadillac Fairview Corporation in 1985. The shopping centre was built in the north end of the city which, at that time, was mainly agricultural land. The centre was the first multilevel shopping centre in London Ontario. It would continue to strive and achieve many first to market initiatives for years to come.
In 1991, the shopping centre expanded to include over 70 new stores and services. This included a miniature golf course in middle of the centre. At that time, it was anchored by three large retailers; Sears, Eaton’s and Loblaws. Three years later, Zellers was added to the mix as one of the major anchor retailers.
A major redevelopment in 1998 to 1999 created a whole new Masonville Place. Loblaws closed its doors and was replaced by the city’s first Famous Players Silver City. Eaton’s closed and was replaced by The Bay. The food court went under major renovation and the miniature golf course was removed from the common area. Today, Masonville Place is home to over 190 stores and services.
