Following in the footsteps of The Grove, Glendale Galleria and FIGat7th, Westfield Century City is undergoing a major rebirth. The outdoor shopping center recently announced its plans to become "a landmark destination truly international in impact and scale," complete with $700 million facelift that will include a slew of new luxury retailers and world-class cuisine.
By the numbers, Westfield Century City 2.0 will feature 422,00 square feet of new retail space, 220 shops and restaurants (70 will be new), eight acres of outdoor space (including a new central plaza), 20 new residences across ten floors, 3,375 new jobs and—our favorite—4,700 parking spaces to double the property's current capacity. As for tenants, a trusted source tells us that Nordstrom will likely join the roster, as well as Tom Ford, Armani and, as rumored, NY-based artisanal Italian food marketplace Eataly.
The project is slated to complete spring 2017; stay tuned for more!
