04 Jun Midtown Shopping Center
The Midtown Shopping Center was built in the 1960’s and has seen many retailers come and go. Prior to its renovation, the Shopping Center had aged and looked worn out aesthetically. The owner realized the opportunity for growth, but realized attracting and retaining more businesses would be much easier if the Shopping Center were to receive a “facelift;” and what a facelift it received! Old, exposed, steel truss rooftops were removed; new structural steel was placed allowing for a soaring modern clock tower; and wall heights were increased dramatically. Over 100,000 bricks were laid, mixed with stucco bands to give the Shopping Center a completely fresh and updated modern look with new signage that was installed for all of the included retail stores. From eyesore to an eye-catcher, after decades of the same tired and outdated appearance, the 11 month-long renovation of the Midtown Shopping Center now boasts as thousands of people drive by it daily.
