The first phase in the revitalization of the city’s central eastern commercial artery, Gallery I is a sky-lighted, climate-controlled retail mall extending between 8th and 10th Streets along the north side of Market East.
The four-level mall is characterized by its straightforward axial plan, restrained detailing and simple vocabulary of materials. Planted courtyards are interconnected by vertically ascending stairs and escalators to shop-lined balconies above and below grade. Continuity is maintained via a pedestrian bridge over 9th Street and an uninterrupted concourse running below grade to Gallery II.
