retail: rehab options

We recently had a client who wanted to explore some different options for rehabbing an existing pad retail building in a strip shopping center. This is a photo of the existing site and building.

In one scenario, the most minimal of the interventions, they would keep the existing structure mostly as-is, and simply spruce it up with new signage, awnings, and new storefront glass systems.
In the next scenario, the building would be torn down and replaced with two retail tenants. We came up with a basic design for the new structure and signage for possible tenants like a cafe and phone/tech store.
In the third scenario, we looked at replacing the building with a new, single-tenant retail store with a slightly different design. This view is from the opposite angle, and shows the potential for outdoor patio seating with cafe tables and umbrellas.
