A facade makeover is a great way to give an old building a fresh look. Facade is architectural design that sets the tone for the rest of the building. The aesthetic enhancements fuel trans-formative investments and promote higher standards of redevelopment in depressed areas/buildings. Facades include painting the entire building. Adding decorative architectural elements, adding and enhancing entrances, and sides of the building. Construction includes installation and/or renovation of awnings, marquees, doors, windows, signage, display window lighting, tiles, signs, and landscaping. Improvements to adjacent sidewalks and parking lots are often included to meet design standards.
The Boulevard Mall- Facade Makeover
1965 Vegas Landmark- SCA Design is responsible for the architectural facade makeover of The Boulevard Mall. The mall was long overdue for an update. Updates were made to the mall in 1990, when prior ownership invested $60 million for expansion and renovations. In 2013 the mall sold to Sansone Ventures for $54.5 million. SCA Design has worked closely with Sansone on the project since its purchase. Many of the recent renovations are impart to the work that SCA Design has done to help makeover the Vegas landmark.
“The Boulevard now boasts a new softer color scheme that emphasizes the beautiful architecture of her time, mid-century modern.” (1) The improvements include a full-scale exterior renovation and expansion of the front entrance to include a number of new casual dining restaurants with a cozy outside seating area. The landscape also has a new design. Regal Date Palms line the parkway and lead the way to many new changes, including a revised traffic flow.
