Centennial Properties announces the renovation of the old Macy's building

With the closure of Macy's and the purchase of the building from Macy's, Centennial Properties will begin a complete make over of the Macy's 274,000-square-foot building. Demolition is underway, with an anticipated reopening of late next year. The first two floors of the building will be retail space, the mezzanine level will be removed, creating expansive ceilings to welcome shoppers on the first two floors. The floors above the retail levels are being designed as residential apartments with fifteen apartment units per floor on floors five through nine. The apartments will take advantage of the park and city views. Floors three through four will be designed as flex space to accommodate either residential apartments or commercial office. The basement floor of the building will be entirely underground parking with the entrance to the parking garage provided by a ramp off Howard Street.

A focus of the project will be the pedestrian experience and streetscape along the entire north side of Main Street between Howard and Wall Streets. The sidewalks will be replaced and tree wells will be provided on all three sides of the building. Centennial has engaged Walker Construction, DCI and NAC Architects to work on the project.

This three building complex has a rich history which reveals names like Welch, Culbertson's, and Wraight's before The Bon Marche', Bon Macy's, and finally Macy's. River Park Square is having a 'Name That Building' contest. Entries will be accepted from October 1-31 on the website, www.riverparksquare.com, and at the River Park Square Concierge desk, located on the first level. Four finalists will each win a $100 River Park Square gift card. The new name will be announced in November.
