Re-purposing a Multi-Level Retail Space to a Food Store
CM&B experts recently spoke at the Food Marketing Institute’s annual Energy & Store Development Conference on the complexities associated with re-purposing a Multi-Level Retail Space to a Food Store with various formats.
Due to the change in retail, the amount of malls impacted by losing their large retail anchors has significantly grown creating a wave of dark spaces. This vast amount of empty retail space, in turn, has created a potential opportunity for new growth areas that come with new challenges. Our team members addressed the many factors involved in such a project including Structural Engineering, Logistical Planning, Building Envelope, Mechanical Improvements, Vertical Transportation Requirements and Waterproofing Requirements just to name a few.
Our team understands the cost factors associated with converting a retail mall space vs. ground up construction, as well as the unique challenges of constructing in an urban mall environment.
