Beck Wins Design and Development Award for Lenox Square Mall

  • Jan 6, 2016

The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) recently awarded Beck a Commendation Award in the Renovation/Expansion category for work on the Lenox Square Mall in Atlanta. Beck provided both architecture and construction services on the façade and food court renovation. ICSC’s U.S. Design and Development Awards are designed to recognize outstanding projects for excellence in the creation of new retail projects, and in the expansion or redevelopment of existing projects in the United States.

As a major renovation to one of the nation’s premier regional malls, the renovation of Lenox Square not only changed the face of the mall, but also changed the image of Peachtree Road located in the heart of the major commercial and financial business district of Buckhead. Lenox Square was a complex project with tight deadlines driven by the Christmas shopping season and the need for each tenant to stay open during construction.

The project scope included renovating the Peachtree Road face of the mall from Macy’s to Neiman Marcus, renovating the existing atrium court in the center of the mall, and completely renovating the Fashion Café food court and patio dining space. As Atlanta developed around Lenox Square, the mall has transitioned from a suburban mall to an urban mall. With this, it was important to connect the interior of the mall to the exterior. The modern design pulls elements from the interior of the mall to the exterior and uses an all-glass entry to allow a view directly into the mall from Peachtree Road.

Throughout its history, the International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC) has recognized and honored the shopping center industry’s most cutting-edge properties, innovative solutions and creative responses to market trends, as well as outstanding examples of design and development throughout the world with its Global Awards programs.
