Santa Fe Place Renovation

Santa Fe, New Mexico

Embodied with the rich southwestern architectural elements of Santa Fe, the mall was challenged with retaining a current and relevant presence. The retail market proved to support continued development; however, residential and entertainment are strong as well. With thoughtful and respectful attention to the prevalent southwestern viga and latilla elements, we developed a new architectural language incorporating a contemporary impression while embracing and reinforcing the existing historic components, inducing the ability to attract new national tenants. The Owner’s preference for a phased approach has driven the strategies to rebrand with outward facing tenant storefronts first to create a fresh, vibrant, and lively contrast introducing indigenous “greenscapes” with outside dining opportunities to transform the former plain and stark exterior facades. The dated food court has been re-envisioned as a food hall with a ropes course and climbing wall to further heighten the guest experience. Future phases are planned for residential apartments with an exterior community park. The final transformation has created a warm and dynamic contrast between old and new: repositioning the development for success.

The total G.L.A is 640,000 SF.

The total renovated area is 60,000SF.

The total project cost is TBD.

"The renovation phases were particularly difficult with hazmat abatement considerations and working around patients. Dalpos remained committed throughout the project and provided outstanding integration, communication, and results."
