Texa-Tonka Shopping center is a multi tenant retail building located at the intersection of Texas ave. and Minnetonka boulevard in the city of St. Louis park. Through a phased construction process this project included site improvements, addressed deferred maintenance, and exterior improvements. Approximately 4,000 SF of existing interior space was demolished in order to create an exterior courtyard. The addition of outdoor gathering spaces and redesign of site circulation prioritizes the pedestrian and cyclist. Sustainable strategies such as solar site lighting, reuse of existing materials/structure, and native pollinator friendly plant species were employed .
