Essex Green

Sordoni Construction Co. was retained for Preconstruction and construction management services for the Essex Green Shopping Center located in West Orange, New Jersey. Project scope includes repositioning 290,000 sf of retail space, consisting of facade renovations, interior demolition and re-demise spaces, along with utility infrastructure rebuild. There will also be 30,000 sf of new building/additions to the existing plan to maximize the amount of leasable space in the center.

Project scope includes a site development plan to accommodate the repositioning effort consisting of new storm drainage, paving, and walkways. The result will bring the site up to code and create a walkable space between all buildings. Existing walkways and plaza will be renovated to create an outdoor space that fits with the newly renovated center.

New construction of a freestanding Starbucks in the parking lot, landlord improvements for a 5 Guys and Primo Hoagies, and the build-out of a Burlington retail store are currently occurring. The Installation of freight elevators and upgrades on existing electrical infrastructure of at least half the strip mall are also taking place.
