Rowland Design Master Planned the transformation of Breton Village Mall into a community center when it was acquired by Jade Pig Ventures in 1997. While existing lease agreements kept the full transition from happening earlier, most of that original plan has now come to fruition. Interior upgrades and a new main entrance kept the Mall current while incremental phases of the new plan came into being.
Challenges for the project included storm water management which is detained below a portion of the parking lot and the fact that the property is divided between two separate municipalities.
The renovation has placed the property at the top of the local high-fashion market. The success of the new, modern structures is reflected in the attractive mix of high-end national and local tenants including Anthropologie, West Elm, Houlihan’s, Lululemon, Jos. A. Bank, Talbot’s, Orvis, Free People and Leigh’s.
