Shopping Center General Contracting and Construction Remodel

As the popularity of online shopping continues to grow, it is important to consider shopping center renovation and remodel construction upgrades to stay competitive with the market. Retail shopping centers often consist of a group of retail stores that are usually configured as a strip center, plaza or a closed/open-air mall. Upgrading and renovating a retail shopping center can make a world of difference in capturing the interest of potential shoppers. A shopping center construction project could consist of simple upgrades, renovations, demolitions and even entirely new builds or additions.

The renovation of Palms Plaza retail complex in Tampa, FL is a great example of how to successfully complete a shopping center construction project.

Palms Plaza is a 32,500 sf shopping center at the nexus of South Tampa, located along the prominent Dale Mabry Highway. The retail shopping center is situated on Tampa’s most notable retail corridor and it is adjacent to one of the highest volume Publix stores on Florida’s west coast. Originally built in 1982, Palms Plaza shopping center was purchased in 2018 by developer Clover Investment Properties. Clover Investment Properties engaged Summit Design + Build to complete a major façade remodel to refresh the property. The exterior façade renovation of the one-story retail center included new dumpster enclosures, new decorative perforated metal panels and a fresh coat of paint to enhance the complex’s curb appeal as desired by the client. During the construction process Summit was pleased to work closely with a preferred vendor to bring in additional savings for the client. Summit was also able to provide and include multiple value engineering options for the client throughout the process.

The Palms Plaza project was completed while fully occupied, in one of the busiest shopping centers in South Tampa. The innovative construction management process that was used to overcome these challenges is one of the many benefits of working with a team of construction experts that loves what they do.
