The Allendale Town Center is a one-story shopping center consisting of 20 tenant spaces ranging in size from approximately 1,000 square feet to 38,000 square feet. The 85,000-square-foot community shopping center is located two miles off of Route 17, next to Saddle River, Upper Saddle River and Wyckoff, New Jersey and has parking for 351 cars.

The entire facade of this long-standing shopping center was removed and replaced with a new updated design while remaining open to the public. The work involved and required considerable coordination to allow access to each individual store, provided safety to the public and avoided interruption of operations as much as possible in order to maintain set goals.

The project involved the removal of the existing store facades, including dated storefronts, awnings, canopies and finishes. New entry features and towers were added to enhance appearance, create visual interest and invite the public. Finish treatments included aluminum storefronts and doors, water management EIFS system, masonry, metal awnings and roofs and new signage was applied throughout. In addition to a new facade reconstruction a 4,739-square-foot steel frame addition to the south increased the existing footprint of the shopping center.

The Town Center improvements also included complete site redevelopment: reconfiguration of the parking lot and drives for improved pedestrian safety, new site and building lighting, sidewalks, curbing, new paving of the parking lot and new landscaping, all completed while the shopping center was occupied. When completed the design of the shopping center will compliment and unify key architectural elements with the design of the anchor tenant, A&P Fresh Supermarket.
