Crossgates Mall has been an evolving project from 2013 through 2016. From 2013-2015 this work was completed while Lauren was employed by Pyramid. She has since been hired on for small redesign projects at this center since starting re-habitat.
Site work has included three years of enhancement projects, and two years of development projects which include a big box redevelopment and a mall expansion. Our involvement in the series of enhancement projects was to hire the architect, negotiate the contract, and guide design including a new paint scheme, new tile pattern, entrance design, and soft seating/interior landscaping. We procured all materials and responded to RFI’s during the construction process.
The big box redevelopment project started in 2011 and lead to subsequent big-box developments and pad sites. The project was initially slated to follow the DestinyUSA model of creating a LEED Core & Shell project that also utilized NYSERDA New Construction incentives. Following the economic downturn in 2013 the project was resurrected. We followed the design principals that carried over from my enhancement project and directed the design process. Additionally, we were the Tenant Coordinator for the Lord & Taylor space within the project boundary. We worked hand in hand with Lord & Taylor’s staff and design team to coordinate their store design and construction progress through the store’s opening.
Also completed while an employee of Pyramid Management Group, was the expansion of the Center’s main entrance to create additional entertainment space. We were hands-on in the design and construction process with the on-site construction management team, coordinated the design and product buy-out for the expansion.
Re-habitat was later hired on in 2016 to help redesign the entrance and common area for a potential new tenant that would be joining the Center.
