Recently purchased by new owners, an older mall in Farmington, Michigan
was in desperate need of an updated exterior. The owners knew and had
worked with Maltese Construction in the past. Knowing the excellent
quality of work Maltese delivered for them in the past, the owners
contracted with Maltese again to lead the project with pre-construction
services and construction.
The community of Farmington was strongly interested in the project along
with the City of Farmington. Maltese worked with the client, community
and the City to implement a complete re-design of the mall’s exterior
along with updated site improvements that included landscaping,
lighting, walkways and parking.
During the course of the project existing conditions were exposed
requiring additional design and engineering to complete the project. The
project was delayed several times for a few weeks to resolve concealed
The end result of the design gives the mall a new updated contemporary
look with EIFS, tile, metal, stone and glass features complemented with
indirect LED lighting. Other elements include outdoor covered seating
areas with metal canopies.
The citizens of the City of Farmington are very happy with the new look.
The mall owners are now enjoying renewed and increased leases and the
tenants are happy with the increased sales. The owners are now planning
phase two for the back retail side of the mall.
