Inland Center in San Bernardino Updates With State-of-the-Art Outdoor Signage, New Furnishings and More
A major component of the refresh is the complete update of the 53-year-old freeway pylon sign, located at the high-profile I-215 and Inland Center Drive exit. The new signage features modern graphics, new metal and stone veneer cladding, LED lighting throughout and the addition of individual sign panels promoting major anchors at the property. Updates at Inland Center, all expected to be complete in fall 2019, also include new comfortable furnishings in common areas, remodeled restrooms and more. “We’re very pleased that Macerich continues to invest in its Inland Center retail powerhouse property that means so much to our community,” said John Valdivia, Mayor of the City of San Bernardino. “The highly visible new outdoor signage, in particular, will showcase major destination and attractions at the property, which has been a vital part of our City for more than 50 years.”
Newly elected City of San Bernardino Third Ward Councilman Juan Figueroa said “I fully support Inland Center’s efforts to enhance and update their presence, and appreciate the positive impacts it has had on the greater San Bernardino community for over five decades. As shopping centers evolve into their next iteration, and begin to introduce non-traditional offering and new experiences, we will continue to support our hometown retail destination. Specifically in the 3rd Ward, I’m encouraged and thankful of the mall’s investment in our community.” Arun Parmar, Inland Center’s Senior Manager, Property Management, added, “Inland Center is a vital part of life in San Bernardino and the surrounding communities and a top choice for successful retailers and brands. While the new outdoor signage certainly will appeal to shoppers, it also provides a tangible benefit to our retail and major partners that more than ever value prime placement and positioning at key properties, like Inland Center. Great experiences matter to shoppers and retailers today, which is why our refresh also includes welcoming new common area furnishings, remodeled restrooms and a variety of other amenity updates all of which will be complete in stages over the next three months. Construction on the I-215 freeway pylon sign is underway and is expected to be unveiled in August.”
