Interior and Exterior Redevelopment of Mississippi’s’ Premier Indoor Shopping Destination Pays Homage to Region’s Roots
Ridgeland, Miss. (November 8, 2017) – Pacific Retail Capital Partners announced today that multimillion dollar renovations for Northpark (http://www.northparkmall.com/) in Ridgeland, Mississippi, will begin in the first quarter of 2018. The renovations will encompass a comprehensive redevelopment of the center including; entrances, dining area, children’s play area, restrooms, interior and exterior landscaping, furniture, fixtures, lighting and common areas. Gensler Architects, based in Los Angeles, will lead architectural and design efforts with Unified Construction serving as the general contractor.
“These renovations provide a new atmosphere, modern design, thoughtful options for families, and a place to create memories through experiences that go beyond shopping,” said Gary Karl, Chief Operating Officer of Pacific Retail Capital Partners. The renovation is the first step in repositioning one of Mississippi’s largest commercial destinations. People will experience architectural upgrades merging the region’s distinct Southern character with timeless, modern design. The stunning new look will combine clean modern glass, steel and natural light with the warmth of woods and subtle floral nuances. The remodeled Northpark will deliver a mix of both traditional and new, with a curated experience for guests and community members.
“We’ve been working with Northpark leadership for years to reinvest in the property,” shared Ridegland Mayor Gene McGee. “We are anxiously awaiting the designs and look forward to working with them on ensuring the expectations of our community are exceeded.” Northpark, located on County Line Road, is part of the busiest retail corridor in the state. With approximately 958,000 square feet of retail and restaurant offerings on two levels, this long-standing indoor shopping destination in Ridgeland is poised for growth after its recent acquisition and this redevelopment by Pacific Retail Capital Partners.
“Investing in Northpark and this strong community benefits everyone,” added Karl. “The renovations and added amenities will provide an improved experience, for both our retailers and community. The fresh dining venues, children’s interactive play experience and family lounge create a stylish and warm, family-friendly gathering hub for Ridgeland.”
Karl continued, “This renovation is part of the longer term overall redevelopment of the property as we continue to look at filling a deficit in entertainment options in the tri-county area, as well as new local and national dining experiences and the right curated mix of retailers to fit the needs of this community.”
Northpark will remain open throughout the redevelopment with a scheduled completion of the work for late 2018, prior to holiday season. Management is focused on minimizing disturbances to visitors and tenants with the majority of the renovation occurring at night and after hours. Pacific Retail Capital Partners oversees all operations at Northpark, and has significant experience in the management, leasing, marketing and repositioning of shopping destinations.
