Capital Sign Solutions has announced the recent transformation of Forest Hills Shopping Center. The Raleigh signage company worked closely with York Properties to reface the entire center and provide a comprehensive sign solution including 48 sign cabinets, wall signs, one monument sign, directional signage, and under canopies.
Forest Hills Shopping Center is located in Garner at the corner of Vandora Springs Road and Fifth Avenue. The 98,629 square foot shopping center was built in 1978 and is anchored by Food Lion and Rite Aid and is also home to El Dorado, Division of Motor Vehicles, and Glam-O-Rama. Lynne Worth, Vice President Retail Leasing for York Properties, worked closely with Capital Sign Solutions president, Patrick Mills, and says that the project was challenging due to the age of the shopping center and Garner’s current sign ordinances.
“We had some issues with the Town [of Garner] regarding existing sign sizes,” says Worth. “Patrick and his team stuck with the issue until it was resolved to make sure that each merchant was happy with the size and location of their new signs. Capital Sign Solutions insists on pleasing their clients and our merchants. This makes the job worry free for the customer.”
Sarah Mills is the Senior Project Manager for Capital Sign Solutions. She says that when dealing with older complexes, like Forest Hills Shopping Center, she often has to work closely with towns in order to conform to existing ordinances.
“One of the services we provide at Capital Sign Solutions is codes research and permitting,” says Mills. “With the case of Forest Hills Shopping Center, we had to totally transform the shopping center while maintaining the architectural features of the signage in order to conform to Garner’s current sign ordinances. We had to rewrite the Master Sign Plan, get approval from the town, and then gain the appropriate permits. It was a very lengthy and time-consuming process, but in the end, we’ve created a beautiful and totally updated shopping center.”
Worth says that she recently completed a walkthrough of the center with Patrick Mills in order to view the final results and couldn’t be more pleased. “Capital Sign Solutions did a very professional job and transformed the shopping center. I have already recommended them to many of our new and existing tenants that desire new signage.”
