Specialty Retail Center


Located at the gateway to Central Ohio’s upscale shopping center, Polaris Fashion Place Mall, it was essential that the Sancus Center at Polaris fit within the existing area’s architectural style.  Andrews Architects worked with the Polaris Design Review Committee to ensure that the proposed design accented the existing shopping centers and incorporated appropriate materials.  Boasting four-sided architecture, the center is aesthetically-pleasing from all angles and the design team created unique solutions to screen mechanical equipment.  The center is anchored by a national restaurant chain, which had specific material specifications and preferences related to their corporate identity.  Andrews Architects was challenged to incorporate the national restaurant’s branding within the center’s efficient and flexible design.  Despite these challenges, the project met an especially aggressive timeframe and was completed within budget.  Further, the retail center has garnered a tremendous amount of positive feedback from the community and surrounding developments.
