Conversion of a three-level, 240,000 square foot mall anchor into class-A retail space suited to upscale dining, lifestyle retail, and large-format entertainment. Selective demolition was used to create an expansive central corridor on the first two levels. Four escalators and a passenger elevator were relocated. Common spaces feature 25,000 square feet of Italian marble tile, a two-story glass entrance, and restored woodwork in the rotunda. The third floor consists of 64,000 square feet of contiguous GLA, with a 40-foot bay-window display case overlooking the mall’s second floor common area. Scope included installation of new lighting and life safety systems. Automated heating and cooling systems from the mall’s central plant replaced a former stand-alone system.
Beginning early in the development process, our team remained flexible, accommodating the owner’s design process, material selection, and leasing demands. Preconstruction services included budgeting for various design schemes, constructibility review, value engineering, and construction scheduling. Cost estimates were adjusted for various tenant scenarios and impacts on life/safety requirements due to changes in occupant density.
