KA and RTKL Take Home the Gold for Fashion Outlets of Chicago

by Craig Wasserman5. December 2014 11:19

 

Congratulations to the Fashion Outlets of Chicago team for their recognition at the 2014 ICSC U.S. Design and Development Awards! The project won the Gold award in the New Developments category. With the grand opening taking place in August 2013, KA served as executive architect, and partnered with RTKL Associates Inc. as the design architect team.

 

Excerpt from the award submission: As the Chicago area’s first ground-up enclosed mall in more than a decade, the Fashion Outlets of Chicago breaks the mold of the traditional shopping center. Located across the street from O’Hare International Airport and just 20 minutes from downtown Chicago, the 733,000-square-foot center features high-end amenities throughout. It fuses fashion and art in an original and significant way, its design incorporating nationally and internationally commissioned artwork that enriches and enlivens its unique ambiance. Its stellar 150-store tenant roster includes such names as Gucci, Prada, Barneys, Diane Von Furstenburg, and Moncler.

Winners of the ICSC United States Design and Development Shopping Center Awards were announced on December 4 at the ICSC CenterBuild Conference in Phoenix. The ICSC United States Design and Development Shopping Center Awards honor outstanding achievement in design/development of retail properties and retail store design.
