TargetExpress Store No. T-3279 is in the California Mall Building on the 16th Street Mall in downtown Denver. The store is Target’s “flexible format” design, which caters to urban living. Each TargetExpress store is decorated and stocked to match its neighborhood, and the stores are about 15% the size of a regular Target. The store has a pharmacy, also.
Roche demolished the interior back to core/shell condition and infilled the third-floor mezzanine to allow continuous foot traffic around the perimeter of the store. The scope of work included raising a floating stair landing to be flush with the third floor; infilling abandoned chases on the second and third floors; installing casework in the new lounge; fireproofing the structural steel; patching the roof at the new equipment areas; reconfiguring the fire protection system; framing and finishing the interior walls; completing all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing work; installing new architectural doors, refrigerated cases, and flooring; and placing hickory wall cladding at the elevator shaft. Finally, we removed the existing escalator between the first and second floors and installed new escalators between the first and second floors and second and third floors. On the exterior of the building, we installed a new curtainwall storefront and relocated the exterior stone cladding.
The store occupies a total of 24,341 square feet on the second and third floors of the building. Of the total square footage, 12,127 square feet is dedicated to the sales floor, with the remaining to offices and stock rooms. The store also has a 200-square-foot lobby on the first floor.
