Flower Hill Promenade Del Mar, California
Located on prime real estate near Del Mar’s famous race track, most residents have either driven by the outdoor mall or stopped in to visit one of its many boutique retailers. The improvements to Flower Hill Promenade include a four-story, 397-space, poured-in-place, concrete parking structure along with a two-story steel structure with plaster and masonry skin. The steel structured mixed-use facility includes Whole Foods retailer on the first floor and medical offices on the second. Because of the constricted site, room for construction was provided by a rear retaining wall that is 45’ at its highest point. During construction of the wall, 30,000 cubic yards of dirt were exported through an existing open shopping center. As part of the new construction, the storm drain system was upgraded for the entire site and a new water line was installed.
To give shoppers a greater customer experience, Lusardi was also contracted to complete the façade renovation of the premier shopping mall. The exterior of the shopping center received a face lift, increasing the height of the façade by 14 plus feet, and brand-new finishes including natural brick and stone surfaces to create a new modern streetscape. Interactive walkways with new decorative concrete pavers, outdoor seating areas, and new landscaping including Palm Trees, were installed throughout the mall to provide shoppers with a leisure shopping experience.
Once completed, this project was recognized by receiving the ABC Excellence in Construction Award.
