Tyler shopping center getting a new look

Posted: Updated:

(FROM TYLER PAPER): The Times Square shopping center is getting a facelift.

"We have decided to give it a new look … to bring it up to par," owner Shirley Pyle said.

The green and orange décor will be gone, and the mismatched storefronts will be replaced with glass. The 4-foot banister along the balcony for the second-floor tenants will be replaced by cables for an unobstructed view of the businesses.

Mrs. Pyle said the staircase in the front of the center, facing South Broadway Avenue, will be pushed back behind the building also to allow more visibility for the businesses, and they are installing an elevator in the clock tower in the middle of the center.

A new metal awning will hang across the top of the building. They are keeping the building's yellow brick, but everything else will be in tones of gray to give it a more modern look, she said. They also will add a grassy area near the Broadway entrance and will redo the center's landscaping.

"It will give it a whole new look," Mrs. Pyle said. "It will be nice."

Phase I of the renovation project started in February and includes all of the businesses east of the clock tower. The work will continue through at least the end of May, she said.

Because summer is a busy time of year for retail businesses and the construction is hard on tenants, she said work will be shut down after Phase I. The rest of the center will be renovated in the fall, beginning in mid-October or early November.

Mrs. Pyle said all of the businesses are remaining open during the renovation and are "working through it."

Tenants in the center's 92,000 square feet include CR Scrubs, Total Nutrition, Allstate, Julian's Asian Diner, Mathnasium, Ty Black DDS, Weight Watchers, Vineyard Christian Fellowship, The Tanning Zone, Double Dave's Pizza, Tyler Athletics, FIT (Fitness in Training) Gym, Cork Restaurant & Bar, Times Square Cinema, Cables Roofing, Clone Shop, Yoga Spot, Body Sculpt Xpress and Relaxation Zone
