DCC completed stores for two new clients: Aesop, known for its strong marketing and amazing skin care products with individually unique stores. L’Occitane en Provence, also a beauty retailer with over 2,000 boutiques worldwide. DCC is extremely proud to begin our relationship with these clients on a wonderful note, with the successful turnover of both stores located at Westfield Shopping Center in San Francisco, CA. Both where overseen by Project Manager, Kat Zelechowska, out of our New York Office.
Throughout 2017 DCC looked for ways to make an active effort to promote human welfare through charitable donations. Some donations are silent such as through contributions to Stand Up to Cancer, American Red Cross and Community Resource Center. Other donations DCC partnered with their employees for participation. Our employees contributed to programs such as SAY San Diego’s Back to School Drive, Meat the Need Food Drive for North County Food Bank, and Carlsbad Police Department Teddy Bear Drive benefitting Rady Children’s Hospital. To finish the year out DCC and their employees, for the second year in a row, sponsored two military families for Christmas through Soldiers Angels. We look forward to have opportunities to Give Back in 2018.

Keeping with Yard House’s style no two location are alike, they cater to local interests for beer and music playlists for each location. The locations include their signature beer selection of 130 draft brews and a network of tubing positioned overhead into the center bar.
Dickinson Cameron partnered with Lazy Dog Restaurant & Bar, a California-based chain, to open its first Colorado location at the Orchard Town Center in Westminster, Colorado. This project was a ground-up site to include an 11,400-sqaure-foot space with a partial covered patio and interior features of stone work, wood accents and fireplaces. This location marks their 25th location which opened on December 20th and Dickinson Cameron is building their second Colorado location to open in Aurora at the Southlands Mall in the spring.
DCC has completed three new boutiques for new clients in Hawaii: Nirav Modi, Furla and Diptyque Paris. Ala Moana Center is the new home for Nirav Modi and Diptyque Paris. This is Nirav Modi’ first US store on the west coast. And Waikele Premium Outlets is home to Furla’s second location in Hawaii.
DCC completes another beautiful store for Cartier in Dallas, Texas, at the historic Highland Park Village shopping center.
The 7,300 square-foot location has a glass wine room that holds over 1,400 bottles and a custom center piece light fixture. This is the first Fleming’s in which DCC has completed and we look forward working with them again.
The California-based American Restaurant now has a location at the South Campus Plaza near San Diego State University. The 7,000-square-foot space features an indoor/outdoor bar and can seat 200 guests. DCC employees attended the soft opening last Saturday and enjoyed the active environment and delicious food. This project marks the second restaurant which Dickinson Cameron has delivered for Eureka.
Our new 1,500sf office space on 26th street & Avenue of the Americas is clearly the start to something real for DCC on the East Coast. Last Thursday night guests gathered to officially kick-off this permanent status in the red brick loft space. The open layout accented by the blackened steel frames and maple floors lends to an inviting atmosphere that will no doubt be an attractive place for employees and partners to review plans, send emails or just share a low-key conversation. Either way, DCC New York is no longer just an idea – we are here to stay.
