Bloomingdale's Chestnut Hill
Department Store
Chestnut Hill, Boston

Today, a former, three-story 185,000 SF Filene's store has been transformed into a dazzling destination located outside of Boston. The renovation by Hixson, completed in less than a third of the time normally required for such projects, centered on the need to maximize the square footage available for retail sales of the women's fashion store and to update the look of the former Filene's store to better reflect Bloomingdale's desired image.

From visible interior design changes to those more behind the scenes - such as the removal and replacement of the entire south facade to provide a more open, modern feel - the end result of all the changes is a store that easily fits within the Bloomingdale's image and brand.
