Graycor Construction was selected for the ALDI grocery store in Westfield’s Chicago Ridge Mall. This is ALDI’s first store located inside a regional mall in the United States. The 20,000-square-foot store is customized to feature an interior entrance and a special loading zone at the mall entry for customers loading groceries into their cars.
Work included selective structure demolition, structural steel, MEP and sprinkler system, and installation of furniture, fixtures and equipment (FF&E). As the mall remained open to the public throughout construction, off-hour scheduling and elaborate dust protection measures were required to minimize the impact of construction on the mall patrons.
Graycor also revitalized the mall’s common areas, including new exterior façades, two new grand entryways, a new mall corridor, remodel of a mall court and upgrades to the theatre, including new seating and equipment.
