Most Exciting Project of 2011: Fred Meyer Burlingame (a subsidiary of The Kroger Co.), located in Portland, Ore. MulvannyG2 led the comprehensive redesign of the existing store in suburban Portland, one of numerous regional "one stop" shopping superstores featuring home and garden based retail and grocery items. Upgrades to the 50-year-old store incorporated sustainable practices and visual enhancements in responding to the need for improved seismic and structural integrity, while enabling the store's appearance to keep pace with higher-style stores in the area. Creative thinking circumvented challenges of a land-locked setting between two major thoroughfares in accommodating additional square footage, in keeping within budget constraints that prohibited entirely new construction. Clever revisions with an eye to both efficiency and appearance resulted in a fresh, vibrant appearance that maintains the approachable ambiance of this long-standing neighborhood shopping center, along with meeting corporate business goals.
