Los Angeles, California – December 1, 2014 – Menemsha Solutions, a leading provider of retail development services, provided architectural and permitting services and served as general contractor for the successful completion of Lululemon’s new 5,766-square-foot flagship at the heavily-populated shopping district on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica. The storefront boasts a colorful, two-story, illuminated glass corner—architectural glass system provided by Global Architectural Systems—with unobstructed entries facing both the Promenade and Broadway St. No expense was spared in the selection of material which includes laminated structural glass, hand-glazed mosaic tile, Nana Wall sliding doors, and a full-length custom, laser-cut awning. Each component was carefully selected to meet the demands of a high-profile, flagship location—as illustrated by the intricately-laid domed mosaic ceiling.

It’s no secret; the City of Santa Monica has a rigorous process of design approval which includes reviews by the Planning Division, Architectural Review Board, Public Works, Building Department, and the California Coastal Commission. Each division requires separate submittals with a unique list of requirements. Using a Fast-Track delivery process, Menemsha completed all entitlements and construction in record time.

“Despite numerous challenges faced—par for the course when building in one of the toughest municipalities in the nation—we were able to complete the project in time for the Thanksgiving holiday and Black Friday festivities,” John Daigle, CEO, Menemsha. Menemsha is proud to add another concept to its list of successful projects on the Third St. Promenade.
