Lansdowne Centre (formerly Lansdowne Park Shopping Centre) is a shopping mall in Richmond, British Columbia. Officially, it is located on No. 3 Road but it stretches as far north as Alderbridge Road, as far south as Lansdowne Road and as far east as Kwantlen Street.
This Richmond shopping destination has 130+ stores and services. Anchor stores include Best Buy, Future Shop, Home Hardware, Home Outfitters, HomeSense, JYSK, Toys "R" Us, Winners and Zellers. 30 minutes from Downtown Vancouver and only 10 minutes from YVR. Home of the Lansdowne Canada Line station, Food Court and seven restaurants. 5 acres (20,000 m2) of free parking.
Public transit, serviced by TransLink, has connections to the mall with routes to Downtown Vancouver, New Westminster and the University of British Columbia. The 98 B-Line, a former bus rapid transit line from Richmond Centre to Vancouver International Airport and Downtown Vancouver, had two stops servicing the mall, named Lansdowne and Alderbridge. The newly completed Canada Line, the 98 B-Line's successor, has a station, named Lansdowne Station, which services the mall.
The mall was built on a former horse-racing track, named Lansdowne Park, from which the mall was named after. It was owned by Woodward's, the anchor tenant of the mall from the opening in 1977 and sold to investors in 1984.
