Remember that epic $700 million makeover at Westfield Century City that's expected to include Tom Ford, Armani, and Eataly, in addition to 4,700 parking spaces? It looks like there's more in-store for the evolving shopping center. It's been revealed that Westfield's existing 39-year-old Macy's will also undergo a major renovation, offering a new 155,000-square-foot space scheduled to open in November 2016.
Apparel News reveals that the move is all part of the department store's new vision, which includes the closing of 14 Macy's stores by early spring and a huge new Bloomingdale's at Westfield Valley Fair in Santa Clara that's set to be unveiled in fall 2017.
Good on Macy's for making a much-needed change at Century City, but we're wondering if the new and improved store can stand up against that rumored Nordstrom.
