The Village is the first in the West Valley to be a pedestrian-friendly, open-air environment, rather than a climate-controlled enclosed mall. It will be anchored by a Costco which is planned to be single level with mezzanine and will be approximately 153,000 square feet.
With the Outdoor Village completed, Westfield as now begun another ambitious project, the modernization and expansion of the Westfield Topanga Entertainment District. In all the mall will be 180,000-sq.-ft. indoor and outdoor district featuring a chef-driven Food Hall with sit-down restaurants, sleek lounges and cocktail bars, unique interior and exterior boutiques, and landscaped indoor and outdoor public spaces. Sixty-plus new tenants will satisfy new public tastes and preferences in the district, among them a 7,500-sq.-ft. Hermès boutique, a 20,734-sq.-ft. Arhaus showroom, a 12-screen new-format AMC Theatres, and a Pinstripes entertainment center.
