Bayshore: Enjoying a new life as a vibrant, open-air destination

When it came time to reinvent this well-established 47-acre shopping center in Glendale, Hunzinger Construction was up to the task.

Over a three-year period, the company breathed new life into the Bayshore Town Center, an open-air, mixed-use complex with restaurants, offices and residential units. Among the most noticeable changes was the name. Today, the property is simply called Bayshore.

Plans for the renovation called for the construction of 13 buildings with connections to parts of the existing mall. The complex now features more than 60 retail stores, including Kohl’s, Barnes & Noble, one of the area’s two Apple stores and a Target.

The new center also has more than 1.1 million square feet of mixed-use space, all of it designed by Development Design Group of Baltimore and Eppstein Uhen Architects of Milwaukee. The work more than doubled the size of the mall. The extensive renovation and construction took place in an occupied and fully functioning environment.

Parking had to be maintained throughout the project as well.

“We were able to successfully coordinate this extraordinarily complex, multiphased project without any loss or interruption to the mall’s businesses,” said Kevin Johnson, senior project manager for Hunzinger.

Construction on the project began in July 2019 and was completed in October 2021.

Hunzinger’s responsibilities included structural modifications, reinforcements and improvements, and the installation of new HVAC, plumbing infrastructure, electrical switchgear and primary-service distribution systems, building-entrance assemblies and vertical-transportation assemblies.

Bayshore now has a vibrant year-round appeal and an engaging setting. The redeveloped town center features distinct aesthetic elements, including a self-guided Bayshore Art Walk, local retailers and restaurants, The Yard and an indoor rotunda for gatherings and entertainment, as well as sites for a select-service hotel and new residential units.
