Dartmouth Mall is a Cinderella story since being renovated by IMC. Very little remained unchanged: the old dropped ceiling was torn out, drab gray tile floors were ripped up, and the entrances were redone. With the sea close by, nautical themes and the play of light on water are now emphasized throughout. Features include 35-foot masts and steel rigging at the entrances and corridors paved with tile mosaics of compasses.
Sales have doubled since the renovation, and the mall is now 96 percent leased.
