Tyler Mall opened in 1970 as a single-level shopping center. It underwent a major expansion and reopened in 1991 as a two-level shopping center, under its current name, Galleria at Tyler. It underwent its third major expansion beginning in 2005 which added a Cinema on a podium with retail and restaurant space below. The existing parking garage was expanded to accommodate the new space. PF Changs, The Cheesecake Factory, and TGI Friday’s restaurants were added. It has approximately 800,000 sf of retail space on a 66 acre site with 5,600 parking spaces.
Brio Engineering provided complete consulting engineering services for the 187,000 square feet outdoor expansion and renovation of this major regional mall on a 60-acre site in Riverside California. The scope of work included complete site work design packages for a new 16 screen cinema on a podium above national restaurants and retailers. Various outparcels including The Cheesecake Factory, P.F. Chang’s and TGI Friday’s restaurant pads were created, while reconfiguring the surrounding parking fields to meet the parking ratio requirements for REA and the City of Riverside. The project was featured in California Centers Magazine issue Number 80.
