Last year, we named The Village at Westfield Topanga one of the most highly-anticipated shopping center openings of 2015. Now that the 550,000-square-foot mixed-use development is slated to open this September and construction has began (see progress above), Westfield has just announced a generous portion of its $350 million project's tenant roster, as well as its major plans for the Sears and Macy's stores that currently occupy the adjoining Westfield Topanga and Westfield Promenade.
In addition to that massive Cosco and a Crate & Barrel flagship, The Village will also host a space for sporting goods and outdoor gear go-to REI. Sur La Table, Jonathan Adler, Z-Gallerie, Bassett Furniture, Varga, M. Fredric, Asics, and JD Luxe will also join the mix, as well as workout wear mecca Athleta.
On the fitness front, The Village will be home to a huge 24-Hour Fitness gym, a UCLA Health & Wellness Center, and even a Yoga Works, instantly offering shoppers a place to wear their new Athleta purchases at. Beauty tenants include Rain Living, Adore Organic Innovation, Beverly Hills's own JuanJuan Salon, and an "elegant" Burke-Williams Day Spa.
For fashionable foodies, fifteen new restaurants will be available, including Il Fornaio (another Beverly Hills mainstay), Tender Greens, Sushi Katsuya, Le Pain Quotidien, and Veggie Grill.Wells Fargo and Charles Schwab will provide a full suite of financial services.
Last but certainly not least, Westfield has purchased the Sears at Westfield Topanga (which will be transformed into a "vibrant entertainment district") and the two Macy's stores at Westfield Promenade. Stay tuned for much more!
