Westfield’s $800 million Century City transformation entices Norstrom to relocate in 2017

Westsiders with a love of shopping, retail therapy, and fashion will be delighted come 2017, as Westfield Century City will complete its multi-million dollar makeover that will include a handful of new and revamped entities.

The $800 million transformation will expand the shopping center to span 1.2 million square feet in order to house a quartet of bigger and better retail options.

Specifically, the final results will be comprised of a three-level Nordstrom, a three-level Bloomingdale’s, a two-level Macy’s, and the debut of the world-renowned Eataly.

The other addition to the Century City shopping center, Eataly, will be the Italian marketplace’s first West Coast location. An indoor hub of Italian treats, Eataly is known for its well-rounded combination of retail shops, restaurants, and even a cooking school.

Alex Saper, Chief Operating Officer of Eataly, told Century City News in October that West L.A.’s favorable weather wound up influencing his team’s planning process.

For example, ideas involving potential outdoor seating and juice bars have been circulating among the Eataly team. Saper also mentioned that Eataly would be working with local producers in order to take full advantage of its surroundings, although there were no specific plans set in stone.

In addition to offering authentic Italian delicacies, artisanal products, and local produce, Eataly will also boast a rooftop bar and lounge with panoramic views of the surrounding city.

Los Angeles Housing Prices Have Shot Up More Than Any Other US City's Since 2000

Los Angeles housing prices went down .2 percent between December and January, and that's where the good news stops. They were still up 5.66 percent over the year before and, brace, up 126.36 percent over 2000, giving Los Angeles the cool distinction as the US city with the biggest housing price increase over the tumultuous past 15 years. That's the news from Standard & Poor/Case-Shiller, which measures 20 major US cities every month and has for years; nationwide, prices were up 4.5 percent between last January and this January, a little less than in Los Angeles, but several cities—Dallas, Denver, San Francisco, Seattle, Miami—saw way bigger growth. And still none of those cities came close to touching LA's leaps over a longer span of time.

Regarding the Broad ...If they just made the top row of the facade jagged instead of straight line, it would make a world of a difference.

By that do you mean removing the connections between the diagonals? I agree.

I think it would be too distracting from the facade pattern.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA: Victoria Gardens getting face-lift
Victoria Gardens is starting a remodeling project to lure younger shoppers. It’s part of the city’s plan to boost economic development.

The focus at Victoria Gardens is on Monet Avenue, a north-south street on the west side of the 1.5 million-square-foot outdoor mall.

Renovations include new building facades, wider sidewalks, expanded patio dining, drought-resistant landscaping, enhanced lighting and resting spaces known as parklets.

About 20 retailers will look different inside or outside, said Christine Pham, the mall’s general manager.

The work is expected to be finished by November.

Additionally, two restaurants are expected to arrive this summer – The Melt, an eatery known for its grilled cheese concept, and Blaze Pizza.

Chinese Developer Reveals Plans for South Park Mega-Project



Quote:
Shenzhen Hazens Real Estate Group, which last August spent $105 million to acquire the Luxe City Center hotel at Figueroa Street and Olympic Boulevard and an adjacent parking lot, has revealed plans to build three high-rises on the site.

The first phase of the project would create a 30-story hotel, with 250 rooms, at the northwest corner of 11th and Flower streets, as well as a 30-story condominium tower at the northeast corner of 11th and Figueroa streets. A second phase would demolish the Luxe hotel and raise a 42- condominium tower. There would be 650 condos in total.

The development would also have 80,000 square feet of retail on two floors, with much of it fronting Figueroa Street.

The $700 million project represents Hazens’ first ground-up development in the United States. The company broke into local market with a purchase of the 802-room Sheraton hotel at Los Angeles International Airport in December 2013....

azens is in the entitlement process, which should take 12-14 months, according to Jerry Neuman, a land-use attorney with the firm Liner who is working on the project. The development, which is as yet unnamed, would break ground in 2017, with construction of the first phase taking about 24-28 months. That would lead to first-phase completion by early 2020, and the second phase would begin immediately after that, Neuman said.

Initial renderings from architecture firm Gensler show sparkling, angular towers with sleek lines and broad swaths of glass. The towers are connected by an eight-story podium with parking and outdoor amenities, such as green space and pools. Additional amenities would be built on the towers’ rooftops.

A large public plaza along Figueroa Street would draw pedestrians into the main retail entrance. The company intends to attract upscale and boutique retailers, as well as restaurants, Hui said.
