Ranked in 2012 by ICSC's Shopping Centers Today as one of the top five largest retail projects under construction in the United States, this LEED-certified factory outlet project consisted of 42 acres of development with eight concrete tilt-up buildings totaling nearly 600,000 sf of retail space. The buildings were arranged in an open air pedestrian-oriented concourse with a "race track" of public space that defines the access to all the tenants. Site improvements included the relocation of existing high-pressure gas lines, fiber optic lines and a water main serving the surrounding cities, as well as realignment of the freeway frontage road. The irrigation system uses reclaimed water, meeting all the requirements for a LEED building while creating a global solution to a local problem. The project was awarded on the basis of a competitive bid and was completed on a fast-paced, 15-month schedule on time and on budget.
