Santiago, Chile — Atlanta-based tvsdesign is working with its longtime client Mall Plaza to create four new retail projects in Chile. The first, which will open in 2013, is a new retail project called Plaza Egana, just outside Santiago, Chile. tvs is also working with Mall Plaza on Mall Plaza Antofagasta, a high-fashion expansion wing that just opened; Mall Plaza Oeste; and Mall Plaza Los Dominicos. In all, tvs and Mall Plaza are creating more than 2.6 million square feet of new retail space.
Mall Plaza Egana will have a hypermarket located on a lower level, so that the public streets are edged with pedestrian-friendly restaurants, cafes, and public entertainment. The design also places the retail concourse in direct connection with Santiago’s underground metro transit system, connecting visitors with the center. The mall includes a collection of urban street shopping, three levels of fashion retail, a signature entertainment roof garden, numerous outdoor terraces and a medical office tower.
At Mall Plaza Antofagasta, tvsdesign repurposed a level of a parking garage into a high-end retail destination. Mall Plaza Oeste, currently in the design phase, includes a contemporary extension of an existing mall as well as an outdoor park and lake. Mall Plaza has also hired tvsdesign to design Mall Plaza Los Dominicos, a new ground-up mall that, when complete, will serve as the brand’s flagship property.
