- Most Outstanding Project, Commercial/Retail, Utah Construction & Design, 2017
One of the largest shopping centers in Utah is expanding once again. General Growth Properties has partnered with Big-D Construction to add an additional 50,000-square-feet to Fashion Place Mall. The expansion will include additional retail and restaurant space, updated interior decor and exterior storefront finishes, and enhanced landscaping. As part of the expansion, there will also be two new entrances to the mall added as part of the expansion project. Currently, Fashion Place Mall has 150 stores, 7 sit-down restaurants and 8 fast-food establishments.
Before the shell to the expansion could be construction, crews had to demolish the old Dillard’s store, and a portion of the existing mall. They also had to relocate and expand existing utilities to create a new building pad and parking on the North end of the mall. As part of the project, a 20,000 square-foot basement was constructed for tenant storage.
