Construction on Market at Tapps to update 1980s aesthetic

If you've stopped by the Market at Lake Tapps — the shopping center that includes Fleet Feet Sports and Office Depot — you've probably noticed construction crews working on the building.

If you’ve stopped by the Market at Lake Tapps — the shopping center that includes Fleet Feet Sports and Office Depot — you’ve probably noticed construction crews working on the building.

Felton Properties, the Oregon-based commercial real estate manager that owns the center, has begun an expected four-month “facelift” of the 1980’s property to update its architectural aesthetic.

The renovation will include a complete facade renovation, removal of the structure’s old metal green canopies, updated parking, lighting and other aesthetic updates.

“The new renovations will essentially upgrade the overall image of the center while ensuring that we maintain a diverse mix of quality shops to serve the local community,” company chairman Bill Felton said in a press release sent out Friday.

Felton added that the center’s businesses would remain open during construction.

Felton Properties has plans to bring an unnamed national discount clothing retailer to its Bonney Lake shopping center, and currently has four spaces from 1,200 to 5,000 square feet available for lease.
