Mirror staff

SeaTac Mall’s new owners have hired a general contractor and enlisted several other firms to help with the redevelopment of Federal Way’s largest shopping center.

In the first major announcement since Steadfast Commercial Properties purchased the mall in February, Steadfast said this week that it has hired S.D. Deacon as general contractor and project manager for the first phase of upgrading the mall.

Deacon, a West Coast-based company with one of its offices in Bellevue, builds retail and other commercial structures. Its projects have included two others in south King County –– the Incredible Universe store in Auburn and Canyon Ridge Plaza, a 7retail complex in Kent.

Steadfast’s “redevelopment team” also includes three firms specializing in leasing and a Federal Way-based engineering company, officials said.

The leasing services will come from Pentz & Partners of Newport Beach, Calif., Northwest Retail Partners of Seattle, and Katz & Associates, which has corporate headquarters in Pearl River, N.Y. and a regional office in Bellevue. Its national clients include Petco and Party City.

Fleetwood B. Joiner & Associates, another Newport Beach company, will be in charge of interior and exterior planning for the mall’s makeover.

The Federal Way company involved is ESM Consulting Engineering, which will handle civil engineering services.

Sparling Electrical Engineering of Seattle and its alliance partners, CDI Mechanical Engineering and Candela Architectural Lighting Consultants, will provide electrical, mechanical and plumbing engineering services.

Steadfast, based in Newport Beach, is in the major indoor mall business for the first time with SeaTac Mall, a 63-acre, 100-store site that has never had a major renovation in its 28 years..

Specific redevelopment plans haven’t been disclosed, but officials have said changes will begin this spring and last two or three years.

Steadfast Commercial Properties is in the Steadfast Companies group which develops, owns and operates apartment communities and retail, industrial, office, hospitality and senior housing facilities in the western U.S.
