The International Council of Shopping Centers (ICSC), recently celebrated three TLP projects at the 2020 ICSC Global Awards—North America. The ICSC Global Awards recognizes the premier trends of retail projects, developments, renovations, expansions, and store design.

Mellody Farm is a modern, upscale mixed-use development with 260,000-SF of retail and 260 luxury apartments. ICSC states that “the project’s mix of modern-industrial and eclectic architecture, rustic finishes, lush landscaping, vibrant murals, music system, and artisan-crafted benches, creates an enjoyable customer experience.” Jered Widmer, Principal, and John Howell, Lighting Designer II, provided lighting design services for all retail exterior facades and site amenities.

Ballston Quarter, Arlington, VA awarded Silver in the Renovations/Expansions category and Gold in the Sustainable Category.

The reimagined retail and dining development was transformed into a modern entertainment hub.

With a condensed project schedule and tight budget, TLP arranged standard off-the-shelf lighting products to create unique focal points and resulted in a customized look and feel.

Development/Owner: Simon Property Group

Jered Widmer, Principal, provided lighting design for both the mall renovation and expansion.
