Westfield Topanga's The Village landed on last fall's list of majorly-hyped megacenters long before its directory was revealed, thanks to its promise of bringing a one-stop "Garden of Eden" to Valley residents. Now that we know where we'll be shopping, eating, and sweating at the 550,000-square-foot lifestyle center, it's time to mark our cals for Friday, September 18th, when the massive open-air development makes its grand debut.
In case you need a refresher, the retail/resto/fitness hub's anchor tenants include Costco, REI, Crate & Barrel, Burke Williams, and 24 Hour Fitness. Boutiques include JET by John Eshaya, Everything But Water, Paper Source, pet shop Healthy Spot, interior designer Nathan Turner's pop-up shop, home furnishings and decor store Jonathan Adler, among many others. Workout-ready shops and studios include Kate Hudson-led Fabletics's first LA shop, YogaWorks, FlyWheel, and Athleta; for post-exercise touchups, quickie beauty options include Blushington, Skin Laundry, and Drybar.
The $450 million upgrade also includes a bocce ball court, kid-friendly hangouts, and water features; see the complete list of tenants here.
