Inspired by rooftop garden design and a nearby historic park, MG2 repositioned an outdated food court into a modern eating destination.
Building on the momentum of the American food hall trend and the excitement generated by the addition of prominent international retailers to the urban shopping center, MG2 worked with a national retail developer to reenvision the development’s outdated food court into a revitalized eating environment.
MG2 created a destination dining experience, combining local restaurants with global dining options. Inspired by rooftop gardens and a nearby historic park, the design reflects natural, raw, and reclaimed materials that speak to the urban grit and sustainable mindset of the region. In conjunction with multiple in-line vendors, quick-serve restaurants, and fresh kiosk offerings, the food court activates the space and spills out onto a third-level terrace to connect with the active plaza below.
