The Westgate Retail Center reimaging project had very clear objectives: to provide a reinvigorated presence to this aged property; to offer contemporary retail amenities that facilitate the desire to be known as a destination; and to deliver improvements in a very cost-effective, non-disruptive manner at the occupied retail center. The design team focused their efforts at the five entries through the use of free-standing architectural screen panels that provide wayfinding, retail identity and express the new attitude of the center.

In support of Westgate's long tradition as a community event venue for seasonal celebrations and activities, the main entry is co-located by a flexible indoor/outdoor living room and food lounge that enables programmatic changes. Additional improvements include hardscape and landscape upgrades, new flooring throughout, high-efficiency lighting, restroom enhancements, interior architectural wayfinding elements, custom furnishings and entitlements.
