Second Phase of Renovations Begins at The Shops at Riverside in Hackensack, N.J.
HACKENSACK, N.J. — The second phase of a three-phase renovation project has begun on The Shops at Riverside, a retail center in Hackensack. Work on the first phase will be completed this summer with the creation of a dining and entertainment district. Offerings will include a movie theater with a lounge and bar operated by AMC, the relocation of The Cheesecake Factory and additional restaurants and specialty stores. The second phase will be completed by the end of 2017 and will involve renovations to both the interior and exterior of the property. Interior enhancements will include new floor tile, a crystal chandelier and water feature, and a sculptural floating stair in the center court near Omega. The refresh will also include additional skylights and raised ceilings. The third phase will redevelop the south mall adjacent to Bloomingdale’s. The existing shops will be reconfigured to create a loop around a central focal point where a portion of the second level will be removed to create 35-foot ceilings.
