Fashion Valley mall to undergo $15M renovation

The Fashion Valley mall will undergo a $15 million renovation that will include an overhaul of the upscale shopping center’s food court, landscaping and surfaces, the mall announced Wednesday.

“Fashion Valley has been the hub of San Diego’s retail scene since it was built in 1969, and we believe these improvements will solidify its status for years to come,” said Robert Doherty, mall manager at Fashion Valley.

Work is scheduled to begin in July and will be completed by the end of September 2011, according to the Simon Property Group, which owns the Fashion Valley mall.

The project will include a complete renovation of the center’s food court, new landscaping in common areas, soft seating throughout the mall, two water features, enhanced lighting, the resurfacing of the exterior and interior and an overhaul of the shopping center’s logo, graphics and signs.
