JL Architects started working with Family Dollar in early 2011. Our in-house team is led by Job Captain Martin Summers. Family Dollar and JLA have collaborated on 44 store in 6 states. Our relationship continues to flourish with 11 stores currently under construction and many more slated to begin in 2013!
One of our most recent projects located in Bloomfield, NJ opened its doors at the end of 2012. It combined 4 existing smaller stores in the front of the building with a vacant office space in the rear. All of the spaces were gutted to make way for new finishes and mechanical systems. This project was particularly rewarding because of the overall improvement to the architectural facade of the building and streetscape. By removing the signs and layers of alterations for the 4 smaller stores then combining them into the storefront of a single tenant; the façade now closely reflects the original fabric of the neighborhoods’ architectural heritage.
