Building G Renovation

OMNIPLAN is currently working on an expansion and renovation to Highland Park Village’s Building G, which was originally added to the historic center in 1965. Building G is a multi-story building designed in the 60s and with a different architectural style than the rest of the center. The owners have considered many options for transitioning this building into a more fitting style and use. OMNIPLAN’s design for Building G converts the building’s exterior to blend seamlessly with the Village’s unique Spanish Renaissance style. This building will feature a 100-room hotel, a full-service spa, a rooftop bar and terrace, a private club and conferencing center.

Ongoing Design

For the past decade, OMNIPLAN has worked with Highland Park Village to improve the center through deliberate and modest expansions and over-build projects to the historic structures. Originally designed in the 1930’s, Highland Park Village was billed as the country’s first self-contained, open-air shopping center when it opened in 1931. It was also declared a National Historic Landmark in 2000. The Village includes more than 70 tenants, including world-class luxury retail and was built by the developers as a town square. Many of the tenants are exclusive to Highland Park Village making the site a retail destination, including Hermes.

We’re trying to make Highland Park Village an international brand name. We want to be the Rodeo Drive in this market.

The Village Style

The design theme throughout the site is a unique Mediterranean Spanish-style architecture. With each design addition, we have restored or maintained the Village’s historic character with authentic architectural detailing in the Spanish Renaissance style. Our intent has always been to make it appear as if we were never there as we added each addition.

    Creating One Aesthetic

    Building G is a multi-level expansion and adds 19,000 SF to the third level and a 6,100 SF rooftop dining terrace. The existing 21,000 SF of space on the second floor will be converted from office to retail, creating space for additional luxury retailers. Building G serves as the primary gateway into the shopping center, OMNIPLAN’s design aims to pronounce the Village’s presence from Preston Road and reshape the building’s exterior to seamlessly blend with the Village’s authentic Spanish Renaissance style.

    Center Court

    Located adjacent to the existing shopping center, the addition and renovation included restaurants and office space on the second floor. The space was not ADA compliant and needed an elevator. With no space for an elevator on the interior of the building, there needed to be an exterior add-on. The new design provides a terrace entrance that can be used for events and a clock tower that houses the new elevator connecting the two spaces. This space is designed with Spanish Renaissance garden courtyards, authentic architectural detailing and convenience for pedestrian access to shopping. The multi-level office and retail space expands the potential for additional luxury tenants. parking is provided in a below grade parking garage.

    Luxury Tenants

    OMNIPLAN has executed the interior architecture of several spaces for some of the luxury retail brands including Akris, St. Michael’s Women’s Exchange and Rag & Bone.

Continued Growth

OMNIPLAN continues to coordinate with the construction of new luxury fashion tenants as we explore future planning opportunities to continue to grow Highland Park Village as a timeless and high-end retail destination.
