Target Galleria Portland was one of the first in-city Targets in the country. At 89,000 square feet, the City Target in the Galleria has a smaller footprint than Target’s traditional suburban stores, which are typically more than 100,000 square feet. This site is unique because the 101-year-old Galleria building is listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Unique characteristics of this project included the donut-design acoustical ceiling and interior cladding systems. More than half of the existing concrete ceilings remained exposed after the finish and paint was applied. Following the finishes, acoustical ceilings with aluminum trims were installed in a cloud fashion.
Performance Contracting also was awarded the opportunity to install interior cladding. This was the first time this application had been used in a Target store. The red cladding reflects the Target brand, from escalator to entryways and columns.
The most challenging aspect of this project was the interior cladding application. Since Performance Contracting had not previously used the product called Trespa, it relied heavily on many craftsmen employees and support from the general contractor.
Judge’s comment: “An urban setting combined with the features of the 101-year-old historic structure are sure to create a unique shopping experience. The innovative products that were installed employing superior craftsmanship have united to form a fresh new look for this Target store.”
