The style of the Fondren Village renovation was inspired by the fifty’s era service station, home to the Everyday Gardener. With a big nod to its fifties inspiration, the new sign, has become a key landmark in the retail and restaurant development. Existing structures were renovated to unify the center and tie into the theme. Public walk areas were enhanced with planters, benches, and trash receptacles chosen to be consistent with the fifty’s period. Additionally, a neon band runs the length of the center, highlighting columns and tenant signage. Tenant signage standards were adopted to further unify the image of the center. The renovation of Fondren Village jump started growth and rejuvenation in the historic Fondren District.
