Cobbler’s Bench is a 1300 sf upscale tailor and shoe repair tenant on the first floor of Towson Town Center mall. The project was a lump sum bid, with the bids coming in well over the owner’s budget. A. R. Marani, Inc. provided a list of savings to bring the cost in line with the owner’s expectations. Our VE included salvaging existing materials, modifying finishes and millwork and adjusting the layout to accommodate some unforeseen existing conditions. The final result is an open, light filled, retail space.
