Boston’s Copley Place is getting a makeover


Boston -- Simon announced plans for a major renovation to Boston’s Copley Place that will begin in September and include interior and exterior enhancements to the retail portion of the property.

In addition to physical upgrades, Simon will continue to add a number of luxury retailers to the property. The majority of the project will be completed by the summer of 2016 with Copley Place remaining fully open throughout the renovation.

"Simon continues to reinvest in our properties, and the renovation of Copley Place is another strong example of that," said David Contis, president, Simon Malls. "We are confident that this transformation will enhance the shopping experience for our guests and further strengthen our position as the high-end shopping destination in the heart of Boston."

The renovation work on the retail portion of Copley Place is part of a multi-phase project being undertaken at the site. Simon also began upgrading the office component of Copley Place in 2014, slated for completion in late 2015.

The retail enhancements will bring modern updates to the interior of Copley Place including:

• New flooring throughout the center that will showcase a unique blend of stone, stone mosaic, and porcelain;

• New ceiling treatments;

• Upgraded escalators including the addition of a new escalator in the Neiman Marcus wing that will connect shopping levels 1 and 2;

• Glass handrails to enhance visibility to the upper shopping levels and 16-ft. retail storefronts on level 2;

• Updated restrooms and the addition of a family restroom;

• Upscale fast-casual dining component;

• Energy-efficient upgrades including LED lighting; and

• A more modern and cohesive look throughout the entire shopping center.
