Simon Property Group, Inc. selected IMC as the construction manager for the expansion of King of Prussia Mall, the nation’s second largest shopping mall. The ambitious expansion connects the existing independent court and plaza sections of the mall, which were previously divided by parking.
The King of Prussia Mall expansion offers over 70 new retailers in a 155,000-square-foot elevated link that allows shoppers to traverse the entire length of the mall without having to exit the facility. An upscale dining pavilion, customer lounge, and new parking deck are components of the project. The main corridor includes floor-to-ceiling windows, seating areas with device-charging stations, a concierge-level guest services counter, and other amenities. The new parking garage features space-location technology. Construction was undertaken in multiple phases with detailed protection/logistics plans to keep the mall open and operational during the two-year construction period.
The expansion was named the ACE Mentor Program Eastern Pennsylvania 2016 Suburban Project of the Year for its design and construction collaboration and teamwork and a Best Real Estate Deal of 2016 by the Philadelphia Business Journal.
