Vision 3 Architects designed the complete gut and renovation of an existing deli at Johnson Hall, located on the University’s downtown campus. The resulting renovations split the deli into two retail venues, including a new concept, City Burger, and a Starbucks franchise to be run by the University. The Starbucks remodel required façade renovations including replacement of existing glass block windows, and a new entry. Vision 3 incorporated the Starbucks prototype model into the construction documents for the interior renovations, coordinated mechanical and electrical upgrades, and performed construction administration for the entire project.


“Vision 3 Architects did an excellent job. Their attention to detail, coordination and timeliness have kept this project on track and made this easier for everyone involved. I certainly hope to be working with Vision 3 in the future.”
