Saks Fifth Avenue – San Juan

San Juan, Puerto Rico (March 18, 2016) – This project is one of the two main anchors for The Mall of San Juan in Puerto Rico.  Strategically located in the center of the San Juan metro area, the urban site presents a number of spatial, logistical, construction and design challenges.  The buildings adjacency to the mall, mall parking deck and mall ring road, all under simultaneous construction, leave little room for staging, construction, and material delivery.  Other complications include proximity to an existing neighborhood as well as seismic and hurricane design requirements.  The Mall of San Juan is the first upscale mall in Puerto Rico and the first location on the island for Saks Fifth Avenue.  The Saks store features an in-store restaurant, Sophie’s, and 15 high end vendor shops.
