Retail

Our retail work is a great example of our versatility. Metrocon has experience making retail environments with great curb-appeal.

Peakway Market Square Shopping Center

Construction Type: Tilt-up concrete panels and steel

Service Performed: Turnkey Building and Sitework

Located in Apex, North Carolina, the Peakway Market Square mixed-use development is a design/build project which is situated in one of the area’s fastest expanding retail markets. Working together, the Developer, Architects and the Builder combined to create a marketable center utilizing good design with cost effective construction methods. The nearly 60,000 square foot building shell was completed in under eight months.

Morrisville Square Shopping Center

Construction Type: Steel and conventional masonry

Service Performed: Turnkey Building and Sitework

Morrisville Square is a 25,000 square foot retail shopping center located in Morrisville, North Carolina. Metrocon worked closely with the out-of-state owners throughout the design process, and later facilitated coordination of site construction completed under a separate contract. This conventional steel and masonry structure, complete with a clock tower, adds a traditional look to the strip mall concept. The shopping center has two out parcels available for new construction. SA phase two expansion is planned. Several tenants are now in operation including the Mexican restaurant “El Meson de Fuentes,” a bakery “The Flour Shoppe”, a hair salon and a dry cleaner.

Liberty Station Mixed Use Center

Construction Type: Steel, Masonry and Concrete

Service Performed: Turnkey Site and Building

This mixed-use center located on the main street of Apex and near the Town Hall won an “Appearance Award” in the Town of Apex. It utilizes a train station influence, reflecting the Town’s humble beginnings in its design and has multiple offices above the ground floor retail spaces. There is an internal elevator for the convenience of the office visitors.

 

Since this project was built for an experienced multifamily homebuilder, all aspects of the construction were under the so called “microscope” and was thankfully completed with everyone extremely happy with the final result.

Maynard Crossing Retail Center

Construction Type: Steel, Masonry and Concrete

Service Performed: Turnkey Site and Building

Looking closely at the canopy which hovers over this retail center’s front entry doors, one might notice that there is a continuous concrete awning suspended by steel rods. This somewhat pricey element represents an architectural statement that was important to both the client and their architect. The repeat client, a man and wife couple comprised of a sculptor/artist and a restauranteur, placed a high importance on certain artistic details, even though they were not always readily apparent.

 

The site was a challenging one on which grade had to be introduced in order to handle storm water and sidewalks became minor retaining walls that still met the prevailing codes. This small center features only few boutique retail spaces befitting such an artistic expression. It is the sister building to the first project Metrocon built on the same site.

Alexander Place

Service Performed: Turnkey Building and Sitework

This center offers 10,000 sf of retail space and is part of a 300-acre master-planned, mixed-use development. The distinctive mix of architectural block and brick, accented by matching fabric awnings, highlights the quality and attention to detail that is exhibited in this tastefully designed, pedestrian-friendly village.
