The transformation provides an elegant surrounding for upscale retailers. In addition to the two level expansion, all four entries were renovated along with extensive interior renovations and major site work.
Twelve Oaks is a dominant fashion destination for the prospering suburban communities in affluent Oakland County. Neumann/Smith provided design services for the transformation of the 1970s mall into an elegant surrounding for upscale retailers.
The scope of work included the addition of 97,000 sf of lease space to the existing mall on two levels, a new 167,000 sf Nordstrom anchor building, and the addition of 60,000 sf to Macy’s. The project included re-work of the loading docks and food court plaza area adjacent to the new Nordstrom on the west side, reconfiguration and expansion of parking areas (approximately 659 new parking spaces), reconfiguration of ring roads adjacent to the expansions, new exterior wayfinding signage and site monument signs, relocation of existing utilities, the re-work of existing landscaping throughout the property, and addition of new landscaping around the Nordstrom and Macy’s stores.
Neumann/Smith also designed two new major mall entries and extensive interior renovations within the existing mall concourse including new seating areas, a play area, a custom passenger elevator, lighting, and wayfinding signage.
