Westroads Mall Kicks Off Massive Renovation

822westroadsWestroads Mall is taking the first steps of an exciting journey: the center is embarking on a major, two-phase renovation and remodel.

The first phase should squeak in just before the holiday season. Holiday shoppers will enjoy new paint throughout the center. Interior lights are also being upgrade with state-of-the-art LED technology, retrofitting existing lighting fixtures to enhance energy-saving capacity. Exterior lights are also getting a new high-efficiency boost, and the center’s energy management system is being upgraded to allow the center’s operations team to better monitor and control the mall’s systems to yield more efficient energy consumption in areas such as heating, ventilation and lighting.

According to Jim Sadler, general manager of Westroads Mall, most of the work will take place at night, after mall hours. “Our crews work at night, starting at 10 pm and finishing at 6 am, so Westroads Mall is ready for business every morning,” said Mr. Sadler. “We are not only excited for the work to start, but also prepared to make certain that we continue to provide an optimum shopping environment. We will stop work during the busy holiday season, so that our shoppers can enjoy visiting with Santa and all the other festivities and decorations as always.”

The pre-holiday work is only the start of the changes ahead for the 1.2-million square foot center.

The Food Court is scheduled for a complete remodel, including the installation of new furniture for diners. The plans also call for a new, contemporary seating area in the center’s Von Maur court. New tile flooring will be installed, soft seating areas will be added to several areas throughout the mall, restrooms will be renovated, expanded and enhanced, and planters will be installed to give the whole thing a sleek, polished look. The center’s entranced are getting a refresh, and once inside, shoppers will find a new interior way-finding system.

Oh, and wi-fi and electrical charging stations, of course.

“Westroads Mall is a one-stop shopping, dining and entertainment destination for customers from across Nebraska and eastern Iowa. Just as our national retailers keep their stores fresh and relevant with new fashions and furnishings, we want to provide shoppers with a bright, friendly place in which to shop,” said Mr. Sadler.
