Outlet Collection at Niagara is committed to corporate responsibility and environmental sustainability, and has a number of design features throughout the property to raise awareness of our green initiatives.
The open-air concept of the Outlet Collection at Niagara reduces energy consumption as the common areas do not need be heated or cooled.
To reduce the heat island effect, the Project has used TPO roofs (white roofs) for flat roof areas providing an SRI (Solar Reflectance Index) of 29.
For water conservation, low flow plumbing fixtures have been used in the Public Washrooms.
Microclover has been used in place of sod for landscaping as that ensures greener areas with lesser irrigation and maintenance requirements. All future areas or areas not being developed are to be covered in microclover to keep it green.
100 bicycle parking spaces are being provided to promote biking to Outlet Collection at Niagara.
Some of the Public Buildings like Guest Services and The Eatery have been designed so that they can be opened to the outdoors in favourable weather, thus saving energy and connecting people to outdoors
Despite of being an outdoor mall, the Outlet is designated as a ‘No Smoking’ Facility.
Low E glazing has been used on all storefronts to create a better Building Envelope.
The entire centre is linked to maintain pedestrian connectivity throughout. There are walkways with trees beside, throughout the site connecting the centre from all surrounding streets.

Designated area for seasonal Farmer's Markets at the centre to promote local and organic growth.
