Owner: Century 21 Department Stores, LLC. via TLA
Project Size: $4.5 million, 30,000 SF
Architect: Wank Adams Slavin Associates (WASA)
Completed: August 2001
The Century 21 Home Store, consisting of an 18,000 sf home goods sales floor with 12,000 sf attached receiving,
storage and office building, was completed in 5 months. Three existing buildings were demolished to create the sales floor addition to the existing three-story building. The new addition included new foundations, architectural custom structural exterior block walls, and a new 9” thick roof slab. This building was designed and built to support a future addition of a second floor sales area.
This project was fast-tracked. Foundation work began prior to the completion of drawings, and the decorative block and steel were pre-ordered in order to maintain the owner’s schedule for grand opening. The entire new sales floor area slab received a “super flat” high end floor finish, acid stained, colored with colloidal dye and coated to a high gloss finish. Over one thousand light fixtures were installed to highlight the sales floor store perimeter.
The existing building was renovated for additional storage capacity and office space. New public and employee
bathrooms were installed along with a new basement for all of the new building services.
