Featured Retail Projects

Tower 24

Monarch designed Tower 24, a mixed-use commercial/residential development that serves as the town center for the adjacent neighborhoods. Located on the intersection of Tower Road and 24th Avenue, it serves as a buffer between the commercial activity on Tower Road and the residential areas to the west. Designed and built between 2011-2012, the tree lined pedestrian walkways connect four two-story buildings with courtyard entries to the first-floor shops and offices as well as the second-floor apartments.

Type of Project: Retail

ACE Hardware

Constructed for the Kennard Ace Hardware Corp, this new 10,000 square foot retail building is a structural steel, bar joist roof structure with CMU walls. Monarch’s design of the interior space includes a large retail area, storage areas, break rooms, and an administrative office space.

Type of Project: Retail

Five Below

For this renovation, Monarch transformed two suites into one large retail space for Five Below in the Gainesville Plaza Shopping Center, working closely with the corporate architect group from Five Below to coordinate the complete design of the exterior and interior space. The team focused on structurally reinforcing existing beams to accommodate new openings and renovated the main façade of the store by doubling the size of the sign and adding a new column with a wall sconce to match the existing structure.

Hand and Stone Spa

Hand and Stone Spa sought to balance an innovative interior design with their serene branding, while maintaining an efficient use of the space. To meet these needs, Monarch designed a unique serenity room with a bubble wall that integrates colored lights and provides a contemporary, soothing feel, resulting in a peaceful and relaxing visit. To support business goals, Monarch also designed seven extra massage and facial rooms (including a room for couples), a waiting room, and a call center for staff that did not sacrifice retail square footage. Throughout the project, Monarch focused on energy efficiency, adding space for extra storage and occupancy sensors in all of the rooms.

Type of Project: Commercial and Office/Retail
