Mercado at Panorama Mall

Mercado at Panorama Mall, Panorama City, CA
The new Mercado entry becomes a front door that re-opens the lost connection from the mall retail spaces to the pedestrian access community from Van Nuys Blvd, offering the community a familiar and inviting architectural element that replaces a blank, unappealing wall. This space has gone from a former shoe store below market rate to a series of high-rent spaces. The mercado brings life to an otherwise simple arrangement of tenant spaces / boxes; using architectural elements to add culture to the space.
