Shopping Center News - - NEWSMAKER INTERNATIONAL -

West­field Cen­tury City marked a sig­nif­i­cant first mile­stone with the de­but this year of many pub­lic ar­eas and beau­ti­fully land­scaped open-air plazas along­side a num­ber of new shops and restau­rants. “There is no doubt that West­field Cen­tury City will be a des­ti­na­tion un­like any­thing else in Los An­ge­les,” said Wil­liam Hecht, West­field’s Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer in the United States. “We’re tremen­dously ex­cited to wel­come guests for a first look at the new cen­tre as we work to­wards our grand open­ing this Fall.” The new West­field Cen­tury City – de­signed by West­field’s own in-house stu­dio in col­lab­o­ra­tion with LA based de­signer Kelly Wearstler – will en­com­pass acres of open space and court­yards, with de­sign and dé­cor in­spired by South­ern Cal­i­for­nia’s out­door life­style and a thought­ful ap­proach to luxury liv­ing.

The cen­tre opened 25 stores, in­clud­ing the new 156,000 square foot Macy’s as well as Aritzia, Bai­ley 44, Kids Ate­lier, Cole Haan, Cot­ton On, Ev­ery­thing But Wa­ter, Ken­dra Scott, MAC Cos­met­ics, Oak + Fort, Ori­gins, Steve Mad­den, Swarovski, Ted Baker Lon­don and Travis Mathew. Shops and restau­rants open­ing through­out the weeks and months ahead will be Bono­bos, Cur­rent El­liott, Equip­ment, Joie, Maje, San­dro, R.M. Wil­liams, Suit­sup­ply, Zadig et Voltaire and Zara. These will join long-time Cen­tury City favourites such as Tif­fany & Co., H&M, Ap­ple, Mi­crosoft, Tesla, Banana Repub­lic, Tumi, The Con­tainer Store, AMC The­atres and the prop­erty’s to­tally re­mod­elled three-level Bloom­ing­dale’s. Also ar­riv­ing this Spring, is a new Equinox fit­ness club and spa – just the first of many health, fit­ness and well­ness ameni­ties to be com­ing to the prop­erty. Food will also take cen­tre-stage at West­field Cen­tury City. Fol­low­ing the re­cent open­ing of Shake Shack, new of­fer­ings com­ing in April in­clude Com­partes Cho­co­latier, La Colombe Cof­fee, Su­gar­fina, Panini Café, Cal­i­for­nia Pizza Kitchen, Pet­ros and Kafe Bu­gatsa.

West­field em­barked on the $1 bil­lion mod­erni­sa­tion of Cen­tury City in 2015 – with a plan that will in­crease the cen­tre to more than 1.3 mil­lion square feet, dou­ble its park­ing ca­pac­ity (along with new tech­nol­ogy-driven so­lu­tions for all cus­tomers) and even­tu­ally link to the LA Metro Pur­ple Line sub­way. The cen­tre re­mains open for busi­ness dur­ing the fi­nal phases of con­struc­tion with ad­di­tional an­nounce­ments and de­tails of its grand open­ing to be made at a later date.
