South Cape Village

Mashpee, MA

Client

Black Creek Group / C. Talanian Realty

Program

Addition of new 20,000 SF, one-story retail building to replace portions of existing retail complex, also designed by PCA, requiring adjustment of street and sidewalks and nuanced design of façade to accommodate larger footprint.

Solution

The renovation of South Cape Village, originally designed and built by PCA in 2004, required targeted demolition and insertion of a new 20,000 SF one-story, single-tenant building. The larger footprint of the new building required reorientation of the connecting street and sidewalk. The long street-side façade was broken into smaller elements, re-creating the rhythm of the center’s varied streetscape.

PCA planned and designed the original 160,000 SF retail village, leading a multi-year permitting process for this new development. The 24-acre parcel ­successfully received local zoning approvals by the Cape Cod Commission and the MEPA (Massachusetts Environmental Protection Agency). The first phase of the development was completed in 2004 with the opening of Roche Brothers, with PCA staying involved over the years with studies and smaller renovations.

South Cape continues to offer an environmentally sensitive and aesthetically indigenous experience of a retail “Village”, providing a rich texture of open space and “commons,” while promoting and integrating pedestrian ways.
