Retail Traffic


Thoughtful well-crafted design does more than realize client goals. It builds upon those goals to enhance the character of where we live, learn, work, socialize, relax, shop, vacation, congregate, dine and play.

At BL Companies creativity and innovation are at the forefront of retail architectural design. We begin each project with a clear understanding of our client's strategies, timeframe, requirements, visions and budget. Our in-house, multi-discipline team enables us to coordinate and assimilate architectural, structural, civil and mechanical, electrical and plumbing elements.

As a respected retail resource we navigate intricate business development issues and deliver solutions. Our clients and partners rely upon us to meet their expectations and complete the project with the highest of standards. We create exceptional retail environments for clients and our integrated slate of services means reduced project time and expense.

Whether designing buildings or interiors, the rehabilitation or renovation of existing buildings, expansions and adaptive re-use, we actively engage our clients throughout the entire design process to create buildings that reflect core values and goals. We believe architecture can directly affect our clients' bottom line whether in brand identification, increased communication, a better setting for educating future generations or a balanced approach to community and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to design environments that reflect a successful balance of all the variables.

BL Companies has recognized credentials with a myriad of national multi-site rollouts. We also have experience with single-site development, lifestyle centers, mixed-use developments, power centers, urban redevelopment, neighborhood centers, mall development/revitalization and entertainment retail sites.

BL Companies is a member of the US Green Building Council with LEED-accredited professionals on staff.
