Asheville, NC, 2017-May-09 — /EPR Retail News/ — Officials at Asheville Mall are excited to announce that the center will undergo a multi-million dollar renovation during 2017. The project is currently underway and will be completed just in time for holiday shopping this November.
The renovation will include enhancements to the interior and exterior of Asheville Mall. A fresh neutral palette of grey and white with hints of blue and green was chosen to give the center a more contemporary feel. Entrance doors will be replaced and enhanced with new lighting and upgraded paving for a more pedestrian friendly feel.
The project includes a new lighting package utilizing energy efficient LED bulbs that will save 800,000 KWH in the first 12 months.
Interior upgrades include new tile and creating inviting new carpeted soft seating areas for shoppers to stop to refresh themselves. New furniture, fixtures, plants and other amenities will help to create a lighter, brighter feel and atmosphere. All ramps, stairs, wall tile will also be renovated to complete the look. Also in the works are plans to address exterior signage and lighting, and upgrading elevators.
And just in time for the holidays, the mall will be presenting a brand new Santa Set to delight the kids.
The work will primarily be done at night allowing ease of access to shoppers during the day. Many of the project’s contractors are local.
“We are thrilled to offer shoppers a newly refreshed look and upgraded amenities that aim to make the shopping experience more enjoyable,” says Jeff Washburn, General Manager. “The community has been incredibly supportive of Asheville Mall and this renovation is another example of our commitment to reinvesting in this community.”
