Retail Traffic


Location alone is no longer the key to retail success. Today's consumers expect a unique shopping experience — a synergy of convenience, diversity and value that complements and enriches their lifestyles.

Carter & Burgess is uniquely qualified to help create this kind of environment. We apply a synergy of specialized design services, including planning, architecture, engineering and environmental graphics with our staff's talent and expertise to craft new lifestyle centers, revitalize urban cores, establish retail hubs for suburban mixed-use communities, and reinvigorate existing malls through renovation and expansion.

And with more than 2,500 professionals in 35 offices around the world, Carter & Burgess is ready to meet any project requirements.

Among our recent achievements is The Shoppes at Blackstone Valley in Millbury, Mass. This 800,000-square-foot development is both a power center with space for big box and national chains, and a lifestyle center featuring a mix of national, regional and local retailers, a cinema and restaurants. With a signature gristmill along the entry drive, the lifestyle center stores evoke a New England look with stone bases, clapboards and trim. Careful layout and landscaping make The Shoppes a wholly pedestrian feel without compromising accessibility.

In Raleigh, N.C., North Hills was transformed into a premier shopping destination, by turning the mall “inside out”. North Hills is now a 49-acre self-contained village containing more than 770,000 square feet of restaurants, shops, cinemas, upscale grocery, drugstore and dry cleaners, 120,000 square feet of office and 300 residential units oriented around a town square and a pair of shopping streets. Future phase will add a 200-key full-service hotel, 200,000 square feet of office space and 65 luxury condominiums units.
