Brixmor Office

This proposal reinvigorates an existing strip retail center by slicing through the corner of the property creating a new office space that opens to a landscaped terrace. What was once a loading zone and a leftover space for some retailers that did not need street presence, the new office broke through block walls and installed […]

Giant Heirloom Market

Heirloom Market is the first urban format store from Giant. The 9,500 sf store has everything you would expect in a larger grocery store in a smaller footprint. It has dry goods and fresh fruit and vegetables, refrigerated cases and a full service butcher and fish monger. The market wanted a fresh feeling with natural […]

Cheltenham Mall

Cheltenham Mall opened in 1959 to much acclaim and has changed its look many times since then to adapt to changing shopping habits. The mall was enclosed in 1981 and since then has never regained the prestige it once had. The addition of a Home Depot and Target store further complicated the flow around the […]

Malvern Shopping Center

A new 16,700 square foot shopping center is located on the corner of S. Morehall Rd. & Lincoln Highway.

The new design, and material choices respect the local historical character. To take […]

Cobbs Creek

The center had undergone numerous renovations and additions, before JKRP Architects produced a design that brought the center into the 21st century, creating a vibrant new hub within the community. A completely new façade, from canopies to storefront to signs, […]

Cottman and Castor

After years sitting vacant, the corner of Cottman and Castor Avenues has finally landed 3 box retail stores in the former Lit Brothers Department Store.  JKRP’s scheme divided the 150,000sf space into three retail spaces and created exciting new signage and entrances to both the front and back of the store, reviving the original intent […]

The Capital Grille – Houston

As the chain’s Texas flagship store, the 375-seat restaurant features rich mahogany millwork, custom light fixtures, and brass detailing. The Capital Grille’s new prototypical design features have a more contemporary feel created by an enormous granite bar with large windows which open onto the outdoor patio.

The Capital Grille – Philadelphia

The project resulted in a formal 230-seat restaurant that features custom mahogany millwork, dramatic coffered ceilings, custom chandeliers, and a state-of-the-art open kitchen. Three additional private dining rooms along the Broad Street exposure were added […]
