University Mall

Fairfax, VA



206,000 SF



University Mall Shopping Center, which was originally constructed in 1977, was renovated and expanded from 138,000 SF to over 206,000 SF. Samaha’s proposed design transformed the aged shopping center into a fresh and colorful marketplace with four new pad sites and an expanded mall. The redesigned courtyard includes a fountain, sculpture, and outdoor dining. Shoppers also enjoy an expanded Giant® Food Store, an enlarged “mini-mall” lit by a skylight, and a new tower marking the south entrance. The transformed University Mall betters serves the community and rapidly expanding George Mason University population by creating a pedestrian friendly center with more shopping opportunities to serve the surrounding area.
