The Beacon Shopping Center in Carlsbad is being revitalized and has undergone a major interior and facade improvement. The center consists of several two-story separate buildings with traditional Spanish architecture. The modernization includes an overall refacing of all buildings and the replacement of the signature tower dome. Several existing arcades are being replaced with new outdoor seating areas and trellises to serve new restaurants, coffee shops, and stores. The facade work includes making new openings within the existing exterior walls to allow the placement of several new folding/sliding door panels.
The interior tenant improvement consists of widening/rearranging of the existing stairs, relocating demising walls, rearranging retail spaces, replacement/addition of new rooftop units, and installing a new elevator. In addition to the work on the building, the project includes major site improvement consisting of hundred feet of new retaining walls, along with new stairs, ramps, seating areas, and passageways.
NIC Consultants have provided the necessary services, including the structural modifications and strengthening of the existing systems along with providing seismic upgrades to the others. The Architectural vision for the project is developed by ADC.
