Retailers Get Urban

October 12, 2010 § Leave a comment

There was a time when retailers had eyes only for the suburbs. The newest era of development, however, is seeing  these same retailers shift interest towards downtowns and other urban environments, where many of their old customers – and potential new ones – are now living. This has brought new challenges for architects, who are now designing the “big box” into smaller spaces. At Studio One Eleven we have already established relationships with many of these typically suburban chain retailers, and have been assisting them with fitting their programs in tighter downtown and inner-ring suburban environments, as well as community outreach, entitlement, and ultimately construction.
