The Miracle Mile Shops mall on the Strip is getting a makeover, and the groups behind the renovation project have been revealed.

The mall announced Tuesday it has brought on design and construction groups Cooper Carry, Digital Kitchen, Sensory Interactive and VCC to overhaul the 500,000-square-foot shopping center. Renovations began earlier this year at the mall, which will remain open through a projected completion in spring 2023.

The mall is excited to work with firms that bring “a vision for the lifestyle destination” of Miracle Mile Shops, Miracle Mile Shops General Manager and Vice President Robert Buchanan said in a statement.

“The expertise of our construction, architecture and design partners is unparalleled,” Buchanan said.

Upon completion, Miracle Mile Shops will have elevated finishes, upgraded technology and digital design elements, a release said. Miracle Mile Shops plans to have “immersive light, sound and video experiences” on the exterior and interior, as well as new and updated restaurant areas.

Tasked with upgrading the mixed-use mall affiliated with Planet Hollywood Resort are four firms with previous works and experience spanning the country.
