Chicago -- Lemont, Ill.-based Englewood Construction said Wednesday it has embarked on five new projects -- four in the Midwest and one in Washington, D.C.
In the Chicago area, Englewood has been tapped for three new retail projects, including the interior build-out for a new Trader Joe’s coming to the city’s Lincoln Park neighborhood. Trader Joe’s will occupy 14,801 sq. ft. of first-floor retail space, topped by a two-story parking deck. The new store is slated to open in April.
Englewood Construction also has begun work on a 6,920-sq.-ft. Advance Auto Parts located in Glen Ellyn, Ill. When it opens in February, the Glen Ellyn store will be the brand’s eleventh Chicagoland location.
Destination Maternity has tapped Englewood Construction for two new stores, under two different brand names. The first store is a 3,760-sq.-ft. Destination Maternity at Orland Park Place Mall that will carry the firm’s brands Destination Maternity, Pea in a Pod and Motherhood Maternity. The inline space store will also include a “kiddie corral,” juice bar and relaxation section.
The second store will be located outside of St. Louis in Fairview Heights, Ill., and will have the name Motherhood Maternity, selling that line of brand clothing only. The 2,000-sq.-ft. space is in the Lincoln Place Shopping Center, about 15 miles east of downtown St. Louis.
Englewood Construction has also started the interior build-out for a 20,000-sq.-ft. American Girl boutique store, located at the Tyson’s Corner mall in McLean, Va. This will be the first store in the Washington, D.C., area for the boutique doll retailer. The project includes retrofitting a wing of the mall, built in the late 1960s, to accommodate American Girl. The boutique store will include special features such as a doll salon, full-service bistro and separate snack counter. The American Girl store is on track for completion by June.
