Norridge Plaza

DESCRIPTION: DATED PROPERTY WITH EIFS AND CORRUGATED METAL MANSARD ROOFS. CLIENT’S GOAL WAS TO IMPROVE VALUE OF THE CENTER AND BREAK UP THE LONG, LINEAR STRIP CENTER TO BETTER ALIGN WITH EXISTING TENANT
DEMISING WALLS BUT STILL ALLOW FOR FUTURE FLEXIBILITY. DESIGN CONCEPT WAS TO CREATE A “MAIN STREET”-LIKE FACADE WITH WHAT APPEARS TO BE INDIVIDUAL STOREFRONTS WITH SLIGHTLY OFFSET PLANES AND ENGAGED PIERS. ANCHOR SPACES ARE ADORNED WITH BACK-LIT KALWALL TOWERS WITH STANDING SEAM ROOFS, ENGINEERED STONE VENEER, STONE MEDALLIONS, STONE PIER
BASES, AND MODERN LIGHT SCONCES, WHILE THE IN-LINE TENANT SPACES ARE FINISHED WITH MULTIPLE COLORS OF THIN-BRICK, STANDING SEAM AWNINGS, AND
VARYING PARAPET HEIGHTS.
