Santa Rosa Plaza mall in California, US, will undergo an extensive 16-month renovation from July 2011, led by Berkeley-based ELS Architecture & Urban Design.

The renovation will be the first major project Santa Rosa Plaza has undergone since the it was built in 1982.

The renovation will include upgrades to the two main entrances, a new pedestrian connection between Railroad Square on the west side of Highway 101 to the mall and downtown core on the east side, and the addition of a lay-by in front of the east entrance on B Street.

The mall will also get new soft seating throughout with new family toilet facilities, updated car parks with new elevators, landscaping, paint and signage, new directional signage at vehicle entrances and new lighting.

One of the notable elements of the renovation will be the addition of electric vehicle charging stations on the third-level deck of the parking structures.

The general contractor for the project is VCC, as reported in North Bay Business Journal.
