The Village at Westfield Topanga

Westfield Topanga, already home to a robust retail offering in the Valley including Neiman Marcus, Cartier, Gucci and Nordstrom, announces some of LA’s best local street retail will be opening at The Village at Westfield Topanga in Fall 2015. 
The Village has attracted many of LA’s hot street retail, restaurants, home furnishings, personal services and notable celebrity concepts including Kate Hudson’s Fabletics,  Karina Smirnoff’s Dance Studio, Fred Levine’s  M. Fredric and celebrity florist Amy Marella’s Fleurish.  They will join Topanga’s retail powerhouses Apple, Zara, Brandy Melville, Tory Burch and H&M.
Here are a few photos of the construction:

The open-air Village, landscaped with mature California Sycamores, Olive Trees and California native plants, is the perfect venue for LA restauranteurs.  Over 15 eateries including; Tender Greens, XOC Mex Cuisine, Eureka! Gourmet Burgers & Craft Beer, Sushi Katsu-ya and Dana Point’s hip, casual Jimmy’s Famous American Tavern will please any palate.  All the restaurants take advantage of the beautiful climate and have exceptional outdoor space for fine alfresco dining.
LA’s most exclusive personal services will cater to customer’s every need.  Juan Juan Salon, Blushington, Skin Laundry, Drybar and the area’s largest Burke Williams Spa will open at The Village. Additionally, local boutique Healthyspot, will provide a full suite of special services for our canine customers.
“Westfield Topanga is already one of Los Angeles’s strongest shopping destinations with everything from Neiman Marcus, Nordstrom, Macy’s and Target to Urban Outfitters and Free People.  With The Village we want to complement that offering and provide a location that would draw from LA’s hip street retail to give our shoppers a destination like no other.  The blend of world class shopping with high end home furnishings, celebrity driven retail concepts, restaurants and select personal services has never really existed before,” said Larry Green, Senior Vice President of Development for Westfield.
The Village at Westfield Topanga further breaks the mold with the introduction of a state-of-the-art Costco, including gas, and outdoor recreational retailer and consumer co-op, REI joining the anchor lineup and serving as another unique point of difference.
The Village will offer a host of fitness, lifestyle and health options for customers with YogaWorks, Flywheel, Karina Smirnoff Dance Studio, UCLA Health and a 24 Hour Fitness Super-Sport.  There’s even a Bitter Root Pottery studio that offers members 24/7 access to the pottery studio with weekly instructional classes.
The Village also provides a destination for home furnishing retailers to conveniently serve the San Fernando Valley.  Sur La Table, Z Gallerie, Jonathan Adler and Basset Furniture, will join Williams-Sonoma and a flagship Crate & Barrel for the ultimate location for home goods.
Westfield carefully curated the finest purveyors of sweets and treats with California favorite SusieCakes, The Food Network’s Cupcake Wars champion, ConfeXion, West Palm Beaches Sloan’s Ice Cream, Montreal based, DAVISsTEA, premium brewer, Barista Society and classic favorites, Peet’s Coffee and Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, all opening their doors this Fall.
Westfield has partnered with KCSN (88.5 FM) who will open a satellite studio to broadcast daily on-air programming and host weekly live music concerts at The Village.  Westfield has also partnered with Raw Inspirations to host a weekly California Certified Farmers Market on Sunday’s, adding to the unique ambiance and character of the property.
Upon opening The Village, combined with world-class Westfield Topanga and adjacent Promenade, will be home to over 300 tenants, with an anticipated 20M annual visits, in excess of $1.3 billion in annual sales, will emerge as one of the top retail districts in the United States.  The architecture, landscaping, and amenities are the essence of Los Angeles’s outdoor living and culture, giving locals and Valley visitors a comfortable and inviting way to connect, socialize and shop.
Some of the shops that Apparel Search finds to be of interest are the following:
Jewelry & Accessories:
Dejaun Jewelers, Manya Jewelers, Sunglass Hut

Athleta, Eddie Bauer, Everything But Water, Fabletics, J.D. Luxe, J. Jill, M.Fredric, Varga
