Bloomingdale’s is an iconic American department store known for its high-end merchandise and excellent customer service. After a merger and major brand repositioning, an existing Macy’s was converted into a new Bloomingdale’s. The anchor store for the prestigious Santa Monica Place Mall, a new exterior façade featuring plaster accented with a unique metal disc design, new windows and a full-height glass atrium created a high impact image. The interior finishes are equally unique and feature large open, exposed ceilings, wood, carpet, and polished concrete floors, new escalators, and restroom upgrades. Seismic and building code upgrades to the existing structure were necessary. The roof, mechanical systems, electrical services, plumbing systems, fire sprinklers and fire alarm systems were all replaced. The entire renovation took place within an extremely aggressive construction schedule of just four and a half months to allow for the grand re-opening to the public.
