Drastically changing the façade of the shopping center with vibrant art, pops of color, and textures is exactly what the heart of Hillcrest needed. Hillcrest isn’t a cookie cutter neighborhood, this design is a reflection of the vibrant community. Around every corner there is something new to see! I am glad they decided to keep the buildings and do a facelift to the 25 year old shopping center.
The late architect Graham Downes was originally contracted alongside Don Hollis in 2012. They set the vibe of the HUB with the idea of 10 new murals. Artists work can be found from Zack Nielson, Sky Walker, EXIST1981, Mike Maxwell, and Isaias Crow.
Contributors to the 3 million dollar upgrade for HUBs success are Page Winkler of MCG Architects, Don Hollis of Hollis Brand Culture for marketing, Jose Parral for Landscape design, Ron Neal Lighting Design, John Hadaya of Jones Sign and Bycor Construction.
