The $9 million Bloomingdale's consolidation project was undertaken to bring to life Macy's long-held ambition for its new home at 900 North Michigan Avenue, which was previously located within the Medinah Shriner's Temple Building. The project exemplifies Pepper Construction's sophisticated, detailed, and vast retail renovation process.
This six-story, 250,000-square-foot Bloomingdale's Midwest flagship storefront marks a stunning transformation and improvement of the storefront's layout, enlargement, and general design. On the first floor, we turned 3,000 square feet from the make-up department into an entirely new luggage section. The largest renovations took place to accommodate the Bloomingdale's Home Store on the fourth floor. The process involved extensive planning into expanding Bloomingdale's presence into the existing mall space, creating space to display furniture and home goods. Meticulously crafted custom features from extensive, intricate drywall designs to exquisite wall coverings, domed ceilings, wood columns and marble tile flooring were installed throughout. Every detail was considered and executed during the process.
