For 90 years, Suburban Square has been a beloved gathering place for Ardmore’s regional community members and visitors. This multi-phase project was initiated to reposition and revitalize the historic retail center, converting Suburban Square into a premier lifestyle-oriented destination with a focus on health and wellness, dining, and live/work options. The redevelopment program included beautification efforts creating new distinct districts, unified with a series of retail promenades. Beautifully landscaped common areas allows visitors to lounge and relax, play with their kids, or participate in programming activities organized by the tenants.
Creating a pedestrian-centric event and retail space, the designer chose a combination of Unilock Planks and Rectangles with Umbriano finish to achieve their design goals. Ideal for high traffic applications and demanding commercial spaces, the unique mottled surface of the Umbriano finish compliments the surrounding streetscape, reflecting a contemporary design approach and a focus on pedestrian experiences at this celebrated Main Line landmark.
