Shepard Square || Design Award Winner

Following a devastating fire to the original building Munter built in the mid- 70’s, the new Shepard Square was designed to set the standard for the future of storefronts in the Village of Lake George. The building handsomely establishes and highlights the corner of Canada and Amherst streets in the Village. Munter Enterprises played an integral role in designing the structure to appease the village planning board and the owner’s budget while facilitating an attractive storefront for prospective retail and restaurant tenants.

The outcome is an inviting streetscape structure with many rooflines, colorful storefronts, and cozy reveals. At night, the structure nicely illuminates the pedestrians with quality architectural fixtures and backlit spandrel glass emulating a second floor. The building has a structural steel frame, membrane roof with internal drains, and a wood façade with cement clapboard siding, architectural shingles, aluminum storefronts with insulated glass, and a cultured stone water table.

The 15,000 square foot building accommodates nine tenants from bakeries, to t-shirts, and Irish trinkets to middle eastern fair. Upon completion, the project was very well received by the community and a significant asset to the architecture along Canada Street.
