Pierside Pavilion, a cornerstone shopping, dining and entertainment complex in downtown Huntington Beach, has undergone the first phase of a major renovation.
The extensive $2 million overhaul, which is the first part of the planned makeover, converted the former Mann 6 Theatre into a 33,049-square-foot office and dining space, and included interior and exterior modifications to the building.
The renovation of a two-level, 118,790-square-foot subterranean parking structure also was among the updates.
The repurposing of the space required structural upgrades on all four levels of the building, according to Colton-based Hogdon-Miank Construction, the project's contractor.
For example, the majority of the original theater floors were removed to meet the new design, and approximately 6,200 square feet of mezzanine was added for additional office space.
"In my 46 years in construction, this was one of the most complex structural upgrades that I have been a part of," said David Miank, executive vice president of Hodgdon-Miank Construction.
In the second phase of the project, upgrades will be implemented for the planned incoming tenants, advertising agency Grupo Gallegos and a live-entertainment venue.
The mixed-use property is located at 300 Pacific Coast Hwy. at the corner of Main Street, directly across the street from the Huntington Beach Pier. Other tenants at Pierside Pavilion include the international retailer Havianas and Huntington Surf & Sport, and popular eateries Spark Woodfire Grill, Fred’s Mexican Café, and Gallaghar’s Pub & Grill.
