Westfield's crusade to cure airport fatigue marches on. Following facelifts at Tom Bradley International Terminal and Terminal 2, the world-dominating shopping center company's latest LAX project is Terminal 6, where they've hooked up 18 new dining and retail destinations.
Inspired by Sunset Boulevard, Westfield tells us that Terminal 6's "The Boulevard" will feature a design that's meant to mirror "traveling along Sunset Boulevard from downtown Los Angeles to the Pacific Coast Highway. The meandering curves in Bel Air and Brentwood inspired the retail and dining districts, while a calm glowing bar becomes the ultimate destination to relax or recharge before a flight." Included in the new retail and design districts are two local hangouts and one global beauty fave: juice essential Earthbar, iconic Cali boutique M. Frederic, and MAC Cosmetics. Major.

"Much like Los Angeles is a collection of diverse neighborhoods woven together by boulevards, Terminal 6 will unite three disjointed buildings into a seamless experience for travelers through the best in dining, retail, design and amenities," explains Westfield EVP Dominic Lowe. "We are thrilled to continue to partner with Los Angeles World Airports to bring the best of LA into LAX as the airport transforms into a landmark befitting of this great city."
