Federal Realty Announces Pan Am Shopping Center Renovation

Federal Realty Investment Trust is excited to announce its plans to renovate the Pan Am Shopping Center, a 228,000-square-foot community shopping destination in Fairfax, Virginia.

Scheduled to commence in late June, the renovation aims to refresh and modernize the 25-acre retail center. The project is expected to be completed by the end of the year and will consist of fresh paint with a new color palette throughout the center, façade upgrades in select locations, new canopy ceiling and lighting, the addition of two trellis features with new furniture, enhanced landscaping and renovated pylon signage and merchant blade signs.  Originally constructed in 1979 and acquired by Federal Realty in 1993, Pan Am Shopping Center is strategically located at the intersection of Lee Highway and Nutley Street. The center boasts long-standing anchors such as Safeway, Microcenter, and Michaels, alongside a variety of retail, dining, and service establishments including Glory Days Grill, L’Image Beauty, Starbucks, and CVS Pharmacy.

“Pan Am Shopping Center has stood as a cornerstone of the Fairfax community for decades,” remarked Deirdre Johnson, Senior Vice President of Asset Management for Federal Realty. “In tandem with a modern refresh, the renovation integrates new outdoor seating, mural art, ambient lighting, and bike racks, all of which are amenities designed to elevate and enrich the customer experience.”
