Santa Monica Place Opens Summer 2010
There's excitement in the air in the city that loves to
shop. Santa Monica is a shopper's paradise and it keeps
getting better. When a tired indoor mall and one of the
prime pieces of land in downtown Santa Monica needed
energizing, the world class, locally based Macerich company
met the challenge of creating an outdoor mall with plenty of
great shopping and dining to satisfy even the pickiest movie
celebs. The urban beach experience is a major design focus
of the approximately 550,000 square-foot, new Santa Monica
Place, located just two blocks from the beach and right next
to the popular Third Street Promenade.
Coming to Santa Monica Place are Hugo Boss, Juicy Couture, 7
For All Mankind, AllSaints Spitalfields, Eva Varro and
Solstice Sunglass Boutique. Located on the first level will
be Hugo Boss, with 2,751 square feet; Juicy Couture, with
3,078 square feet; 7 For All Mankind, with 2,270 square
feet; and AllSaints Spitalfields, with 4,782 square feet.
New for the second level are Eva Varro, with 1,075 square
feet, and Solstice Sunglass Boutique, with 888 square feet.
Anne Singleton, vice president of leasing for Macerich has
been excited about how things are shaping up. New to the
Santa Monica Place line-up are: Hugo Boss, specializing in
beautifully tailored men’s clothing and accessories; Juicy
Couture, which features fun, fabulous clothing and
accessories for women and girls; 7 For All Mankind, a leader
in premium denim and accessories; AllSaints Spitalfields,
the fast-growing, fashion-forward British clothing and
accessories brand; Solstice Sunglass Boutique, a
headquarters for designer brand sunglasses; and Eva Varro, a
local Southern California designer, whose fashions for women
are currently available in select department stores and
boutiques. This will be the first Eva Varro boutique.
In addition to Bloomingdale’s, which selected Santa Monica
Place as the site for its first SoHo concept store outside
Manhattan, and a new Nordstrom, other retailers signed on
for the project include Burberry, Kitson, Nike, CB2, Michael
Kors, Ted Baker, BCBGMAXAZRIA, Coach, Ed Hardy, True
Religion, Joe’s Jeans, Swarovski, Love Culture, Angl,
Bernini, Michael Brandon and Arthur, as well as Artevo, a
technology-driven art gallery.
An important element of the new Santa Monica Place is the
rooftop Dining Deck, which will offer ocean views and a
carefully selected set of chef-driven restaurants and
quick-casual dining options. Already announced restaurants
include two concepts from nationally recognized restaurateur
Richard Sandoval, Zengo and La Sandia, plus Pizza Antica,
Ozumo Sushi, and XINO Restaurant + Lounge.
Dining Deck includes: Charlie Kabob; Chick n’ Ribs;
Fatburger; Manchu Wok; Pinches Tacos; Sarku Japan; Stefano’s
Pizza; Sushi Itto; and Wetzel’s Pretzels. The
indoor-outdoor, fast-casual component of the Dining Deck is
made up of nearly 17,000 square feet in a modern
design dominated by extensive glass and open views.
Santa Monica Place’s parent company, Macerich, is
headquartered in Santa Monica and is a fully integrated
self-managed and self-administered real estate investment
trust, which focuses on the acquisition, leasing,
