Retail Development
Anchorage, Alaska


This retail development is located on a prominent Anchorage street corner. Spark Design worked collaboratively with the client to develop a variety of options for a 40,000 square foot flagship store and a 10,000 square foot retail center. The design team considered the dominate summer and winter wind directions and afternoon sun patterns to allow for optimal outdoor seating and pedestrian interaction.  The Municipality of Anchorage’s 2020 Comprehensive Plan sets priorities for future land development and encourages unique architectural and site design standards. The goals of Anchorage 2020 led to a solution in the flagship store and retail center are located along the main streets while parking is tucked into the back of the lot.
