Solano Mall Remodeling Set to Begin
By Amanda Janis/Business Writer
The extensive remodel project at Westfield Shoppingtown Solano mall breaks ground today.
The ground breaking will be marked by an early morning ceremony, featuring guest speakers Harry Price, mayor of Fairfield, Sean Quinn, director of the city's planning and development department, and Larry Green, Westfield's senior vice president of development for its western region.
Planned improvements include enlarged skylights, and upgrades to lighting, fixtures, and flooring, as well as to escalators and elevators. The shopping center will also be "divided" into four themed areas.
"Part of the renovation is to incorporate themes that relate to the county and communities that it serves," Katy Dickey, vice president of communications for Westfield, told The Reporter. She explained that the four themes will be "flight," in honor of Travis Air Force Base; "market," as a tribute to the county's agricultural legacy; "fair" in homage to the fairgrounds in Dixon and Vallejo; and "winery" as a nod to the region's proximity to wine country.
Remodel plans include substantial renovation and enlargement of the center's four main entrances, incorporating additional landscaping and vibrant theme-related signage.
Dickey also told The Reporter, "We hope to - as part of the renovation - recover the old theater building and incorporate a 24 Hour Fitness center, as well as other services that may include a car wash."
Representatives for the shopping center and 24 Hour Fitness met with the city this week, confirmed Erin Beavers, assistant director of Fairfield's planning and development. The proposal, Beavers said, will be presented to the city's planning commission March 8.
