Early in the process and as solution providers, Wii Projects recognized the potential revitalization qualities of this Multi-tenant Industrial Building. It's current zoning (I-G) Industrial-General is intended to be characterized by a wide variety of light and medium general industrial uses with support for various commercial activities.
The majority of Foothills Industrial was developed in the 1970's and now close to 50 years later these buildings are seeing higher than normal vacancy rates. As a result, significant funds will need to be reinvested in these buildings and the standard operating and maintenance budgets will need to be revisited. Some of the assets have been replaced over the preceding 30-40 years and the owners and manager are now operating a building with assets at a variety of different ages. There is no longer a single baseline and the facility managers are tasked with tracking the different assets.
Our revitalization team offers clients looking to update their tired building assets a variety of creative, quick, and financially-optimized options that reflect progressive tenant values and ultimately drive higher occupancy.Bringing together cost-effective solutions, leading-edge design, and high-performance building systems, our Revitalization team is working with the ownership team and management group to transform this aging and dated asset into a distinctive, modern structure with dynamic urban character critical to attracting high-quality tenants.
Buildings are vital assets, not only to owners and their stakeholders, but as well to the citizens that live and work in them, to the cities and towns where quality of life and skylines are defined by the built fabric.

Refresh — As solution providers, Wii Projects recognizes that building revitalization is not an easy one-size-fits-all solution. Our revitalization team offers clients looking to update their tired building assets a variety of creative, quick, and financially-optimized options that reflect progressive tenant values and ultimately drive higher occupancy.
Retrofit — Our Revitalization team brings a holistic approach to the retrofit of a building’s systems to ultimately lower operating costs and enhance tenant comfort. We partner with facility management and/or building operations teams to understand the unique qualities of every building and then, with the best mechanical and electrical designers and trade contractors, to modify systems where possible and replace only where necessary. We partner with the best control and network solution providers in the market to provide fully integrated, intricate BAS systems that allow for greater interoperability and higher occupant satisfaction.
Repurpose — From tired mall to new offices, old offices to new condos, or old retail to new restaurant, many clients are looking to repurpose their assets to accommodate new market-competitive uses. Our Revitalization team adds immense value when engaged early through the pre-construction phases to anticipate and advise on repurposing challenges, solutions and opportunities.
Reposition — As densification and decreasing land supply in urban cores drive property values higher, the repositioning of assets has become increasingly a client imperative. Our Revitalization team will work with you to assemble an experienced team of design professionals, engineers, consultants, and tenant advisors, seasoned in the unique demands of urban revitalization projects, to provide you with turnkey solutions that manage the complexities and often considerable technical risks involved in such projects.

These projects are often high-profile, under intense public scrutiny, and can be complicated by ‘hidden’ issues or other unknowns. To be successful, they demand careful pre-planning and the thoughtful, innovative and sensitive construction approach that our Revitalization team offers.
