Empire Commercial Construction, a retail-specific division of regional general contractor Taylor-The Builders, was awarded the construction contract for Ladybugs Play within the Whitney Town Center development located at 650 Whitney Road in Fairport.
Empire is teaming with Rochester-based LaBella Associates for the design of the custom 2,600-square-foot play center build-out. Construction is underway, with completion in January.
“Empire is proud to establish a relationship with the enthusiastic and imaginative owners of Ladybugs Play,” said Empire President Jayne Penepent. “We are excited to bring another unique business to Whitney Town Center, and deliver a customized space to be welcoming and inclusive, where children feel inspired, encouraged and happy.”
Ladybugs Play is a customized build-out, specifically designed for children 7 years of age and younger. The play space is large enough for exploration and small enough to sit back and relax, while still being able to keep a watchful eye. Each piece of equipment was selected to provide guests with a variety of experiences.
In addition, “Lily Pad Lane” is available for the youngest guests, 18 months and younger, where they can play and explore in a safe sectioned off area.
