Short Pump Town Center completes multimillion dollar renovations
Just in time for the holidays, Short Pump Town Center in western Henrico County has completed a multimillion dollar renovation that took place over the course of this year.
The project added new landscaping, walkways lit with hanging lanterns, gathering spaces with seating under heated pavilions, fountains, a pedestrian bridge spanning the Main Plaza, updated restrooms and a centrally located glass elevator.
For children, there’s a new play village in the Food Court and an outdoor play area in the Main Plaza. To ward off the cold, shoppers can stop by a new outdoor fireplace.
In addition to its new look, the center has added new stores and restaurants. More than 20 new retailers opened their doors this year, including: kate spade new york, Michael Kors, Madewell, Free People, True Religion, Oakley, Sephora and Soft among others.
Recently opened restaurants include Cooper’s Hawk Restaurant & Winery and Rock Bottom Restaurant & Brewery. The Boathouse, a local Richmond restaurant with two locations, also announced recently that it would open a restaurant at Short Pump Town Center in the spring of 2015.
To celebrate the season, the center added a new 60-foot, walk-thru holiday tree, decorated with more than 60,000 lights on the new Main Plaza Bridge.
“With these superb renovations, as well as the many new retail and restaurant offerings, Short Pump Town Center is poised for an exciting new chapter of growth …’’ E. Kemel Blue, the center’s vice president/general manager, said in statement.
