Watt completes Alicia Towne Plaza renovation
Mission Viejo, Calif. — Watt Commercial Properties said it has completed a $6 million renovation of Alicia Towne Plaza in Mission Viejo, Calif.
The 19-month redevelopment project included converting an existing Mervyn’s building for L.A. Fitness and updating the façade treatment for the remainder of the 150,000-sq.-ft. property.
The two-level, former Mervyn’s was updated to a state-of-the art, full-service fitness facility for L.A. Fitness, which reconfigured the 84,000-sq.-ft. building into a 62,000-sq.-ft. club.
Beyond upgrading the L.A. Fitness facility, Watt updated landscaping throughout the 10-acre site, replaced signage, added new support pillars with banding details, refinished window and door frames, and added new trellis canopies and sconce light fixtures, as well as wrought iron cross bar details throughout the building facade.
