With an eye toward establishing the premier retail shopping destination for California’s Gold Country, Westfield Design in collaboration with Gensler renovated and expanded this mall property, unifying old elements with new to reflect the diversity and growth of the surrounding community. The design offers a mosaic of spaces, experiences and interests incorporating a grand entry, broad promenade, community garden and an elegant collection of new shops and dining options. Materials evoke the textures and colors of nature and the outdoors, celebrating the best of Northern California living. The revitalized shopping center has increased visitorship 46 percent, added 1,600 jobs and contributed to city sales-tax revenues; achievements that garnered Gold honors from the ICSC U.S. Design and Development Awards.
