F.W. Webb Breaks Ground on Near 1 Million SF Central Distribution Facility by ci design


We are pleased to announce the groundbreaking of the new F.W. Webb Company’s Central Distribution facility. ci design is currently serving as designer for the near 1 million sf facility, one of the largest of its kind in the state of New Hampshire.

On Tuesday, August 30th, members of the ci design team joined F.W. Webb at the ground breaking ceremony on site of the new facility in Londonderry, NH. As F.W. Webb continues to grow operations in the north east, the $60 million facility will sit on a 75-acre lot, doubling the size of the company’s existing Central Distribution in Amherst, NH.

ci design has partnered with Green Leaf Construction to complete the project. The Distribution Center is expected to be operational by end-of-year 2017.


Metropica Featured at Urban Land Institute (ULI) Florida Summit by ci design


At this year's Urban Land Institute (ULI) Florida Summit in Miami, representatives from the Metropica development team, KGH International Development, spoke on a panel addressing the challenges and opportunities that come with the development of large-scale, mixed-use developments such as Metropica.

Regarded as one of the "most highly anticipated real estate projects in south Florida," the primary strategy behind the 65-acre transit-oriented, mixed-use development aims to provide an all-encompassing retail experience by heavily incorporating food, beverage and entertainment options into the mix of shopping tenants. This retail district, master planned and designed by ci design, differentiates itself from the shopping centers and malls typical to South Florida to create an experience aligned to the changing expectations of the customer.

Project Update: Construction Begins at Country Bridge Shopping Center by ci design

Country Bridge Construction

ci design is pleased to announce the commencement of construction at Country Bridge Shopping Center in Lakeland, Tennessee. ci design is currently serving as architect for the renovation of the retail shopping center.

As part of the redesign at Country Bridge, owner A.J. & C. Garfunkel broke ground in late April on the new out-parcel building site located at the intersection of Highway 64 and Fletcher Trace Parkway. The 4,000 square foot pad building will accommodate two new retail tenants, a Starbucks Coffee and Marcos Pizza.

Additional improvements to the shopping center will include extensive facade redesign, the addition of LED lighting and signage, and new landscaped islands at the main entrances. The project is expected to be completed in late summer 2016.

Country Bridge Shopping Center is anchored by high-end grocer Sprouts Farmers Market, which replaced former tenant Kroger in the spring of 2015, and is currently home to more than 10 national and local tenants.
