Valley River Center to Create Welcoming New Front Entrance and Outdoor Plaza
EUGENE, Ore., April 2, 2018 – Valley River Center, part of the Macerich (NYSE: MAC) portfolio of one-of-a-kind retail properties in top markets, today announced plans to create a welcoming new front entrance and grand outdoor plaza surrounded by 14,000 square feet of new retail and restaurant space.
Construction is set to begin in early spring and be completed by fall 2018. The plaza is designed to be inviting, with lush plants, outdoor seating and open space for gathering and special events throughout the year. The new entrance and outdoor plaza will come together as an experience-focused reuse of the former Sports Authority space.
“Valley River Center is all about providing great experiences for people, and we are creating this appealing new entrance and beautiful outdoor space to bring our shoppers a fresh look and feel,” said Rob McOmie, Property Manager, Valley River Center. “This project also includes new outward-facing space for shops and restaurants, adding energy, connection, and a whole new sense of arrival.”
