User:Neutralsurface/Winrock Shopping Center

The Winrock Shopping Center is a shopping mall located in Albuquerque, New Mexico, United States. The mall is anchored by Dillard's and Bed Bath and Beyond. Currently the mall is vacant except for the anchor tenants who own their own spaces. Redevelopment is expected and pending.In 1961, Winrock Shopping center was completed as a joint venture between the soon to be Arkansas governor Winthrop Rockefeller and the University of New Mexico on a sandy lot at the edge of I-40. The indoor shopping center was a first for Albuquerque boasting Safeway (grocery), J.C. Penny, Montgomery Ward, movie theater, and a hotel. The mall was built as a single floor indoor and outdoor mall including an enclosed outdoor courtyard and acres of parking on all sides. This design allowed for a pleasant shopping experience in the dry summer heat as well as the cold high-desert winters.Bounded by the busy I-40 to the south with off-ramps to Louisiana Boulevard which bounds the site to the west. Shortly after Winrock’s opening, competition moved in across the road as the Coronado Mall was built in 1964 but didn’t make too large of an impact on Winrock which was the destination of choice and even the birthplace of the now famous Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta. Over the decades the mall underwent renovations and additions which added an additional floor, an improved food-court, better lighting, bigger anchors, and totaling the number of retail spaces to around ninety. At either end of the mall are both a men’s and women’s Dillard’s department store each with three stories and ample space. In its prime the mall was always bustling with people clothes shopping, eating at the food court, or playing at the arcade but beginning in the late 1990’s the mall began a decline and vacancy rates began to climb. The writing was on the wall by the year 2000, but as late as 2003 temporary seasonal leasing had been able to fill 100% of available spaces. By 2005, tenant's leases were not renewed in anticipation of redevelopment of the property. Today, forty-eight years after Winrock opened its doors, the mall is clearly dead decaying rapidly. The only remaining stores today are Dillard’s, Bed, Bath and Beyond, and Sports Authority, each of which own their respective spaces and manage bring in significant retail traffic on their own.For nearly twenty years, developers and the city government have had their eye on Winrock’s 80+ acres. New Jersey based PruWinrock LLC, the firm that owned the property began paving the way for new development and proposed “an open-air large-format community center.” This new incarnation would include high-end retail, a state-of-the-art movie theater, apartment condos, and plenty of parking. The new center would include 450,000 square-feet of retail space that promised to bring high-end stores that could not be found in New Mexico previously. Ground breaking for phase I was to begin in 2003 and then be completed two years later. PruWinrock hit the first of many snags when it’s approval was denied by the planning commission for additional on and off-ramps to the neighboring I-40 on the grounds that they had not completed a required traffic study.Over the following years there were numerous false starts. Increasing construction and material costs were cited as being a major factor in the delays. With each delay, retailers that had initially been on-board with Winrock but were anxious to break into Albuquerque’s up-and-coming market were crossing the street to “ABQ Uptown.” ABQ Uptown, or “Q” for short, was referred to as a “Lifestyle Center,” and once it broke ground it casted the future of the Winrock mall and PruWinrock further into doubt. Phase I consisted of retail along Louisiana Boulevard and Phases II & III consisted of residential development behind phase I and away from the main roads.In 2007, after much public disappointment over failure to fix the situation, PruWinrock sold the property to an Albuquerque based group GK Partners LLC for an undisclosed amount. Since that time, significant progress has been made on both the masterplan and furthering the process. The new developers held community meetings to showcase the new plans in an effort to garner their approval and ask for their support. The current presented masterplan includes 1.5 million sqft of new office, retail, restaurant, residential units, and hotel. Also included are a 70,000 sqft movie theater (including IMAX), a grocery store, parks, plazas, and over 6000 parking spaces. Existing flagship stores like Dillard’s and Bed Bath and Beyond are to remain and continue as anchors but in a whole new context. The new plan is much more densely urban than previous plans. It includes housing sitting atop retail stores, both which face narrower pedestrian-friendly streets as opposed to vast acres of asphalt parking lot. The first phase of the project is currently projected to be ready for occupancy as early as 2010.
