Renderings released for The Shoppes at Carlsbad

CARLSBAD — Renderings for upgrades to The Shoppes at Carlsbad have been made public by Rouse Properties.

The New York-based company, which owns the mall, began renovations several weeks ago and is expected to be finished by the end of 2017.

Rouse CEO Brian Harper said in a previous interview renovations will be done in a multi-phase effort and bring significant upgrades to the facility. He said exterior of the building will be redone plus streetscaping to match what is currently in front of the Regal movie theater and restaurants on the south side of the mall.

In addition, the interior is expected to be much brighter with the additional of new and improved skylights to take advantage of the natural light.

The ceilings and floors will also be torn out and new material installed. The color scheme will feature soft colors such as white, gray and sea blue to match the feel of Carlsbad’s beach-centric identity.
