As shoppers’ preferences continue to evolve, MG2 elevates a super-regional center expanding its open-air format.


The latest Alderwood Mall expansion further solidifies the property as an entertainment and dining destination for residents of the Puget Sound region. As one of the largest malls in Washington, the addition of a new outdoor retail plaza aims to captivate guests by modernizing the outdoor offerings.

The new series of open-air shops utilizes the site of a recently demolished department store. A revitalized entry into the mall’s interior portion creates a moment of arrival for guests and fresh wayfinding signage encourages exploration. While MG2 designers wanted the space to feel distinct, they were also mindful to take cues from the mall’s existing architectural elements to ensure a cohesive shopping experience for guests.
