Construction began at the end of 2016 on the $575 million redevelopment of Gallery Mall, which will become the Fashion Outlets of Philadelphia when all is said and done in 2018.
Crews have a long list of repairs to do, including replacement of common area floor finishes, ceilings, lightings, and columns. There’s also some selective structural demolition in the works, as evidenced by this photo—complete with a rainbow!—taken by structural engineering company Keast & Hood on Monday, February 6.
Just as a reminder of what the Gallery once was, here’s what that same view looked like in 2015, more than a year before construction began.
Construction is expected to finish up in August 2018.
