Vertical Urban Retail

CambridgeSide Galleria
Cambridge, Massachusetts
1.7 Million SF
New England Development

CambridgeSide Galleria was the first vertical super regional mall on the East Coast. Mr. Sisco, a Project Executive for the $125 million project, employed “up, up construction:” whereby the below grade parking structure is vertically bypassed to allow the Mall’s upper 3 stories to be enclosed early, saving an additional shopping season’s income.

The Shops at Skyview Center
Flushing, New York
Onex Real Estate Partners

The 560,000 SF Skyview Center is a two block urban infill mixed use retail vertical Mall development including a 2,400 car parking structure. Development by Design with Storm Partners provided fresh leasing concepts and planning solutions for the challenged existing center. The “Outlets” concept was created fulfilling an Asian customer base desiring brand names and value pricing. Because of the outlets leasing success, the center was sold for $400 million in 2015 to The Blackstone Group.
