The Chicago based realtor General Growth Properties (GGP), which owns the Staten Island Mall is all set to begin construction of the multimillion dollar improvement project of its 1.2 million square feet property located in New Springville.
The initial work on the expansion project of the mall is slated to begin in one week, as commented by a senior marketing manager of the redevelopment project of the mall.
To carry out successful redevelopment, the need is to upgrade the utility platforms that can accommodate the needs and essentials of the expansion. The redevelopment process has been initiated in several ways, but this is for sure the large part of the overhaul will commence in the coming weeks.
After completion of the utility work, interior updates will commence, as commented. Internal updates have been given on the basis of electrical needs that need to be carried for the expansion. It is all about envisioning the electrical box in the home, and all of a sudden there is a plan to have extensions in the home, the electrical box will receive more than necessary updates.
This is because there will be additional outlets and lighting in the office and new rooms. That’s what is needed at the redevelopment project, he further commented.
The main challenge is that the expansion to be taking place at the primary entrance of the center, and the main access to the shopping center from Richmond Avenue is behind the shopping mall which is close to Macy’s.
To overcome this, both the utilities that lie inside the mall and outside requires updates and rerouting to some extent.
