Del Amo Fashion Center Remodel & Expansion
Torrance, CA


Redevelopment Enhances Shopping Experience

The Del Amo Fashion Center is undergoing a multi-year major redevelopment. Originally constructed in 1959, it is now the largest mall in South Bay, with nearly 200 stores that range from small shops to fashion department stores to full-service restaurants.

Gausman & Moore is providing mechanical and electrical engineering services for the $200 million renovation and expansion project. A project highlight is construction of a new Patio Cafes in the heart of the shopping center. Resembling a garden, the dining pavilion is replacing an existing food court.

Other features include new landscaping, new signage, new food courts, and improvements to shopper circulation. Gausman & Moore is also involved in redesigning one of the anchor buildings, vacated by the tenant, to allow for a multi-tenant occupancy.

The owners, developers and architects have appreciated the strengths and experience brought to the project by the Gausman & Moore team. A significant challenge has been designing a substantial renovation and expansion of one of the country’s busiest malls, while allowing the mall’s unaffected areas to function normally.

The complicated design and construction phasing has been the most prominent characteristic of this unique project.

The Del Amo Fashion Center serves nearby communities like Palos Verdes, Lomita, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Redondo Beach, and Gardena. Prominent retailers include Macy’s, H&M, Anthropologie, Barnes & Noble, and Coach. The mall also features an outdoor promenade, restaurants, and an 18-screen AMC movie theater.
