Adaptive Re-use: From Abandoned Shopping Mall to State-of-the-Art Healthcare
Turf Development in Lexington, Kentucky purchased the shuttered Turfland Shopping Mall in 2012. The developer sought to redevelop the property into a vibrant center of economic activity. Bristol Group developed and implemented an innovative plan for adaptive re-use of a one-time anchor department store structure into a state-of-the-art health care clinic for the University of Kentucky. In addition to the clinic, the once abandoned property is now home to a Staples store, Home Depot, Walgreen’s and multiple restaurants, including Longhorn Steak House, Chick Fil-A, City Bar-B-Q, Burger King, and O’Charley’s.
