The Shops at Todos Santos Plaza

Four separate buildings under one 30,000 square foot roof had been knitted together over the past 75 years. The wood, unreinforced masonry and newer concrete structures were in need of seismic, ADA and aesthetic upgrades. Demolition revealed obvious insufficiencies in shearwalls, foundations and steel bracing. Rather than the simpler K-bracing, the project called for as much open glass store frontage as possible, so MXL installed more difficult wide-flange steel moment frames to allow for full storefront accessibility.


New storefronts and entryways to newly-defined tenant spaces meant ADA compliance challenges as well. In one case, MXL built a ramp, seat wall and sidewalk to allow for ADA compliance and to correct the deficiencies in a city sidewalk.


MXL was closely involved with the architect, engineer, utilities and city planners to meet each challenge with design and implementation solutions that avoided long delays and large cost overruns.
