The Campus @ Horton Plaza will convert the iconic 1 million-SF, 5-story 1985 postmodern mall into a budding mixed-use technology campus. The $330 Million conversion features an aggressive expansion of the existing Nordstrom building that adds 5 additional stories on top of the existing 5-story structure. To reduce cost and business interruption, Miyamoto developed creative solutions to strengthen the existing columns, base plate and footings without the need to replace any steel or excavate further under the existing footings. Miyamoto avoided delays by utilizing a unique braced frame layout to sidestep any strengthening at the existing electrical vault. Miyamoto also plans to add a sawtooth-shaped roof allowing for natural lighting while avoiding any costly retrofits to the surrounding structure. Additionally, the existing Bradley building, adjacent to the Horton Plaza Park, required a seismic upgrade of its moment frame and foundation systems for its conversion to a food hall. The Campus @ Horton will be a thriving innovation hub that includes a creative office, entertainment, retail and restaurants which cater to leading technology and biotechnology companies.
