Best of 2018: The Best Architecture
Gateway Shopping Center
Location: Wayne, PA Type of project: Neighborhood Retail Center Renovation Size: 221,050 SF GLA Highly visible along a well-traveled route, citing market studies and encroaching developments by others underway, the entire center was renovated to secure its position in the market. Removing large sections of the continuous canopies provided open air seating locations for clusters of food tenants. An all new facade was accomplished cost effectively by a creative reuse of existing substructure. Coupling an array of new building materials with existing, one can’t tell what remains from yesteryear. Pocket seating areas, new hardscape and landscape throughout, the entire center has been rebranded successfully.
