Suburban Project of the Year: King of Prussia Mall Expansion

Suburban Project of the Year: King of Prussia Mall Expansion

1-south-elevation-aerial-2014-05-05The 2.7-million-square-foot King of Prussia Mall is the nation’s second largest shopping mall. Opened in 1963, and today owned by Simon Property Group, Inc., the mall includes more dedicated retail space – over 400 stores – than any other shopping center. An ambitious expansion project will connect the existing independent court and plaza sections of the mall, which were previously divided by parking.

When it is completed in August 2016, the King of Prussia Mall expansion will offer 70 new retailers and a 155,000-square-foot elevated link that allows shoppers to traverse the entire length of the mall without having to exist the facility. An upscale dining pavilion, customer lounge, and new parking deck are components of the project. The main corridor will include floor-to-ceiling windows, seating areas with device-charging stations, a concierge-level guest services counter, and other amenities. The new parking garage will incorporate space-location technology. Construction was undertaken in phases to keep the mall open and operational during the expansion.

Both the New College House and King of Prussia Mall Expansion were previous ACE Mentor student design projects. ACE congratulates all of the professionals who have engaged ACE and executed these significant regional projects.
