Brookfield Properties Contracts Turner for LA Mall Renovation

Turner Construction Co. recently contracted with Brookfield Properties to provide general contracting services for the renovation of a retail mall in downtown Los Angeles.

The $23-million project, recently branded as Fig at 7th, is located at 735 South Figueroa Street.

The Fig at 7th project includes the full renovation of a three-story, 330,000-sq-ft retail mall. Turner says it will demolish the existing slab flooring, guardrails, escalators, elevators, interior and exterior finishes, and signage, and install new flooring, new monumental stairs, escalators, finishes, paving, signage, demising walls, and temporary storefronts.

Turner will also provide modifications to the mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and fire protection systems.

Designed by Gensler, the renovations are scheduled to be complete May 2012.
