GIANT at the LVL North
GIANT at the LVL North is an anchor for the revitalization of Spring Garden Street. The 50,000 sf store at the corner of two major thoroughfares, Broad and Spring Garden streets, provides easy access to fresh groceries for the tenants of LVL North and the surrounding neighborhood. Extra amenities include a Starbucks, Beer and Wine Garden at shopping level, and a GIANT Direct distribution accessible through the below grade parking garage.
The tight urban site required unique solutions for this GIANT location. The coordination of mechanical systems, especially exhausting the extensive refrigeration system, was one of the challenges our team resolved. Additionally, the main entrance had to work around the existing Broad Street Subway line, and the rear of the building needed to accommodate loading zones for 60 ft trucks along the narrow Brandywine street.
