Location alone is no longer the key to retail success. Today's consumers expect a unique shopping experience — a synergy of convenience, diversity and value that complements and enriches their lifestyles.
Carter & Burgess is uniquely qualified to help create this kind of environment. We apply a synergy of specialized design services, including planning, architecture, engineering and environmental graphics with our staff's talent and expertise to craft new lifestyle centers, revitalize urban cores, establish retail hubs for suburban mixed-use communities and reinvigorate existing malls through renovation and expansion.
With more than 2,500 professionals in 35 offices around the world, Carter & Burgess is ready to meet any project requirements.
Among our recent projects are Legacy Park, in Norman, Okla., and Towson Town Center, in Towson, Md. Legacy Park will offer a special environment where people can shop, work, meet friends at a café or watch the latest blockbuster. With such a unique combination of convenience and variety, Legacy Park will tap into an otherwise untouched market in Norman. Legacy Park is a regional destination and is in a prime position to take advantage of the region's customers. Legacy Park Town Center will contain 400,000 square feet of retail, restaurants and entertainment. The overall 300-acre mixed-use development when completed will include more than 2 million square feet of retail, restaurants, entertainment, offices, and a hotel and conference center.
Towson Town Center, built in the 1950s, is an older center remodeled in the early 1990s. Its tight space and unusual multilevel layout make for a challenging redevelopment. Carter & Burgess is designing a 90,000-square-foot expansion that maximizes retail on a 2-acre space, which includes a 2-story Crate & Barrel, Brooks Brothers, H&M and additional retailers. Most of the center's interior will also feature a new design, totaling more than 425,000 square feet. The expansion and renovation will link the multilevel A-shape layout to complete the circuit. An outdoor plaza with restaurants will link the center to the rest of the city. The existing food court area will be renovated, replacing a conservatory theme with a more contemporary look.
